The star quilt is finished - yay! Here are a few progress photos.
First of all, the top all pieced together. I deliberately put the darkest backgrounds on the diagonal. I don't know why I did that but it works for me!
Here it is pinned to the wadding and starry backing ready for quilting.
Here it is diagonally quilted and trimmed around the edges.
The binding - black with pink stars - is all attached.
Here's the quilt lying on our bed. Fabulous!
Then I took it outside and asked Douglas to hold it up for me. You can just see his fingers!
The back is perfect for a starry quilt, don't you think?
This quilt is for a very special baby - can you guess which one? ;o)
I know the pattern is nothing new but I'm especially proud that I worked it all out by myself. Well, myself and Mr. Pythagoras. Once a mathematician, always a mathematician! :oD
I have a few other things to show off but they'll wait for another day. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy staring at the stars!
