This is my work in progress – a little star using From Little Things fabric designed by Sarah Feilke. The Stars in your Eyes pattern is also available in Sarah’s book ” From Little Things” .   I am delighted to say that I nominated completing this quilt in the 2013 Quarter 2 Finish Along   at  She Can Quilt.  It feels great to have the quilt top completed.  Following are some pics of the progress.  Sorry about the quality of the photos………some days I get it right.

I just love this little Bird ……..its so cute.

Having managed to conquer inset piecing with the stars and a few seam rips I felt good about the top.  The next challenge was the borders.  I wanted to make sure that I didn’t detract from the stars as some where light in colour value.  I chose my old favorite – black and white spots.  It never fails and it made the stars ‘dance’.  The black and white polka dot inner border was complimented with a wide strip citrus yellow.  It went together very well and I am delighted with the top.
