I made this quilt top about 2 years ago and put it away. I pulled it out again late last year and finally finished quilting and binding it last night. Despite some shoddy workmanship, I just love it.  Grin I hope you do too.

I was unsure about this binding, but I think it turned out great!

The colours are quite rich - my iphone camera doesn't show them very well. Here are some of the individual blocks

sorry for the blurry photo - a detail of quilting that shows the binding.

For anyone interested, I quilted around the flowers in the star centres. The star backgrounds have meander/stipple quilting. I quilted flowers and vines and leaves along the striped block borders.

c & c welcome!

I love the colors.  The quilting really makes the star points pop, it almost looks like they are 3D.  The flower quilting looks amazing too.  What a great quilt!

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

I'm glad you finished it, it looks great.  I really like your choices when quilting it, the stars really do pop out.

Inside a dog it's too dark to read.

I always love stars and I especially like how the heavier background quilting really makes them pop out. Nicely done!

Woohoo! Baby Clark is on the way. Due October 24th.
