Starry Eyed


That's how I feel about this quilt now that it has some borders. I didn't have enough HSTs to do all of the inner borders so I did what any good wonky quilter would do and just added some fabric to make the top and bottom strips long enough. It is 67x88 inches which makes it bigger than most of the quilts I make. I think it might be a good travel/hotel quilt. I took two smaller ones on our last trip but one large one would be easier to handle and more comfortable for sleeping. Now I have to find something for backing. I'll probably piece some scraps.

I really like this one Joyce. It came together beautifully. Must admit that scrappy quilts are my favourites.

The dark borders really set it off; just what was needed.

Every time I see another version of this star, I want to make another! This is bright with an inner glow about it. Pretty.
