Spring Market--Can I do it? Part THREE!

This is a happy post because I have two quilts made with my new INTRIGUE collection to show you that are virtually done. Okay--one needs to have its binding sewn down, but that is close enough, don't you think? First one done is called More Than Stars.  This quilt is 50" square.
