Beautiful Stars Shining……

Star in Your Eyes  long arm quilting June 2013
I am so delighted that I have had my beautiful Stars in your Eyes quilt top long arm quilted (pattern by Sarah Fielke, From Little Things Book).  I just love it! It’s quilted with an all over quilt design of swirls. The following pic shows a close up of the swirls.

SIYE Frontback

I have loved making this quilt and enjoyed every step of the process.  I love how the stars come alive with the black and white border.  The thick citrus yellow strip just plays beautifully with the Stars.

SIYE Backing
For backing fabric I used Anna Maria Horner’s  Receiving line, Garden Party.  This fabric  has been in my stash for some time and its one of my favorites. The strong Aqua and beautiful coloured flowers gives a strong contrast to the softer coloured stars.

Well I am off to complete my binding so I can enter this quilt as completed on my Quarter 2 2013 Quilt Along hosted by the lovely Leanne at She Can Quilt. The Quilt Along is a great way to motivate and help finish off those projects that are on the to do list. Stop by Leanne’s blog if you want to find out more details here.

Have a fabulous day, Happy Sewing……………………….Marie
