60 yards of Ruffles!

While the EPP quilt (and a few others) are moving along, my older daughter is turning 4 tomorrow!
Since she is a girliest girl I know, I decided to make her a pink, pink, fluffy pettiskirt.
I'm following this tutorial by Ashley to make the skirt below:

To start off I ruffled 60 yards of light pink ruffles. OK, it was 60 yards to start with, now it's around 30.
I'm hoping to continue tomorrow and maybe finish it next week.
Here are the ruffles (it took a good 2 hours to make them and the bobbin was very, very hot when I stopped to wind some thread!)

UPDATE: Here is the finished result:great fun!

EPP progress

These are the first 2 stars, joined, bordered in black Kona cotton.
I'm thinking to alternate dark and light, with random color placement.
I don't really have an exact count of the stars, diamond, strips, etc. I've cut, so this is more of a make it up as you go quilt.
I will need at least 90 blocks for the quilt size I want. Only 88 more to go.
