Good evening, everyone!
I finished up my quilt top for the Star Light Star Bright QAL hosted by Melissa over at Happy Quilting. A big thanks goes to Melissa for designing such a fun project and her generosity in sharing the pattern with us, week by week!
Although some of my points are not perfect, I continue to improve my piecing skills by working on quilt-alongs and BOMs. These timed projects give me a definite goal, and I love quilting alongside people from all over the world.
To see a complete list of my fabric selections, you can read my original SLSB QAL post. I pieced the top using Aurifil thread, #2000.
My husband assisted with some outdoor photography as we tried to catch the quilt in the fading evening light. I think these pictures don’t do the fabrics justice. You can see my pretty plum tree blooming in the background.
Then, I brought the quilt top indoors and placed in on the floor and took a couple more photos.
I hope to be able to quilt it and bind it in time for the grand parade of finishers. Right now, I’m leaning towards using one of the dark brown fabrics for the binding.
This quilt top is gorgeous… who cares about perfection when a top looks this good.
Jennifer, your quilt is just lovely! I really like the gray fabric with those Charley Harper prints. Nice job!
Oh,it turned out just fabulous!!! I love how all of the colors just pop!!! Absolutely fantastic!! And your points look wonderful. I am so glad you enjoy the quilt-a-long for working on your skills, that is what they are all about 🙂 And I can’t wait to see how you quilt it. It is just an all around stunning finish!! Great job!!
Oh wow!!! Your top is gorgeous!!!!! I love all the pops of color and of course your inspectors are gorgeous as well. I have five inspectors 🙂 I can’t wait to see your finished quilt.
Lovely quilt! Your plum tree makes me wish spring would hurry up and get here too! Love your quilt inspector 🙂
