Stars galore!

I finally decided (after much gnashing of teeth) that I would quilt my sparkle punch quilt myself. Initially I thought it really needed a FMQ design and I am strictly straight lines only. In the end it came down to quilt it myself or leave it unquilted in the cupboard... I'm happy to report its all quilted and the straight lines look ok after all. The binding is made and my goal this weekend is to get it stitched on. I really like binding part of making a quilt.

I also finished up another star for my Constellation Quilt earlier in the week. 

I love this one Hadley made, so I adapted the pattern as Hadley has done to get the star-in-star look. Aren't the colours in her quilt gorgeous?


  1. I love the colours in your constellation quilt, especially the blue background (instead of white!). The oranges look great in contrast.

  2. GOOD for you going ahead with the quilting! Your star is awesome too!

  3. Bravo for taking the plunge and quilting the Sparkle Punch quilt! There is so much you can do with straight lines. I see both star quilts are going to be beautiful!

  4. Love the big star and look forward to seeing Sparkle puch all finished :)
