Finished Or Not

Isn't this little guy cute?  He followed my daughter home from England in June.  He's intended to be a cell phone charm but we both agreed he's too fragile for that so I like to hang him from the side of my sewing machine.  Maybe I'll start a new trend.
As promised this is the Christmas quilt I made using the Twisted Sisters template and pattern.  It's sewn together using partial seams.  The fabric is mainly from the Countdown to Christmas line and it's leftovers from a prior quilt.  My motivation was the small amount of leftover green paisley that makes up the center square of the spoke.  I can't decide if it needs a border.  Any ideas?
I also signed up for the Designer Block of the Month at The Fat Quarter Shop using the Strawberry Fields line by Joanna Figueroa early this year.  It was a real splurge for me as I'm on the thrifty side!  The fabric is so beautiful.  I love it.
This is block 4 that came last week.  I like to take it out of the package and just keep it nearby for a few days until I cut into it.  Have I said I love it?!
Here's block 1,
and block 2,
and block 3.
The directions are so clear and the fabric cuts so generous,  I think you could make two blocks every month with what you receive in each packet. Have a nice weekend and see you soon!

Your Christmas Twisted Sister quilt is darling. I think a border would look real cute around it.
