Top sewn!!...............



Here it the sewn top.  I love the texture that the Australian fabrics have with all of their little dots.  It is close to 59” x 70” and all of the edges are bias so I’m not sure what the finished size will be.  I think I should add a border to stabilize it so I’ll look today to see what I have that would not take away from the pieced blocks.  I have already staystitched but that isn’t enough to keep the edges straight but it will keep them from stretching.

Take a look at the new sign up form on the right side bar of my blog.  I'll be opening a new store soon and will be offering quilts, quilt tops, fabric kits and more.  I'd love for you to be first in line when the store opens.

I know you are happy with this! Love how the shimmer takes center stage and makes you hunt for the Hunter Stars....lol. It looks good with a border but know it needs one for stability.

Magnificent! And to have it all sewn together so quickly is doubly so.

I love those little pops of blue, green, yellow -- really a beautiful top!

Lovely, and so good to know you are back sewing again. A border, my pick would... naturally... be a blue from one of the blocks in the top half, but your eye will find the right colour and fabric so easily.

Oh Wanda ~. Hunter Star is magnificent, it just sparkles on my screen. I agree those Australian fabrics are fascinating and had to be fun to work with. This piece is one grand come back, you sure out did yourself.
