The last one bites the dust!

I'm celebrating!!
I have finished my last appliqué block for my Hop To It quilt!!!
I seem to have been working on these forever but the home straight is in sight!
Block 1 - Rose Hip Heart
The light blue on the left is a new fabric - why I wanted to introduce a new fabric
 on the last block I don't know, but the colour worked so well!
My 12 blocks of Edyta Sitar's Hop To It quilt - a quick layout to see how they look.
You can see a bit of the sashing on the bottom right hand block.
Now it's just the layout to sort, piles of sashing strips to assemble, border fabric to arrange and the quilting to do---whew, nearly finished!
Have a happy week everyone!

Looks terrific - can see why you've added that blue. With a little bit sprinkled through the sashing, you'd never know it wasn't in any of the other blocks - but if you were really worried, you could add a few berries here and there (cause I know all about berries).
