Seeing Stars with border..........


I finally sewed the border on this quilt Wednesday morning but didn't get around to taking the photo until yesterday.  It is about 65" x 83".  It will shrink a little with quilting. 

Today I need to bake 2 batches of cookies because the art quilters are coming tomorrow.  The dough is all mixed and chilling in the refrigerator.

I love that b/w border. It ties together all the b/w background prints used in the blocks.

I always love star quilts - I have two and I think I probably need more of them!!

Nancy said...

Your black and white fabrics are nearly as much of a "star" as the colorful pieces because they make the color stand out so clear and bright. Very nice! And the border print is just right.

Have always loved your 'Seeing Stars' design... had forgotten about it through all your garden series, then the pastel blocks, it was a happy surprise to see it again and with the border sewn on.

The openness of the black and white so complement the saturated bright colors. What a great quilt!
