Star Light Star Bright A Finished Quilt

I finished up my Star Light Star Bright quilt this weekend.  This quilt is my March goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes and I finished just in time to link up once again.  This one was a big one to quilt and finished up at 93" x 93".  I made four 24" blocks and one 48" for this quilt.  I quilted a secondary star in the navy space.  It is not perfect as I marked it out as I went along.  I think in future I might find some way to mark the quilt before I load it on the frame so it will be easier to get it uniform. 



You can't tell from the picture above but there are random light blue squares and rectangles stitched throughout the navy.  You can see it better in this picture below that I took inside before the binding was on. 




Close up of the quilting. I did over lapping squares in the navy area. I did some ruler work with this quilt but mostly free motion.  




I used Hobbs Heirloom Premium 80/20 batting for this quilt, first time using this batting.  I have not washed this one yet so not sure how it will look once it is all washed and run through the dryer. 

I used Glide Thread from Fil-Tec for this quilt in Rock Navy, Blossom, Hot Pink, Aquamarine, Lt. Turquoise and Pink Lemonade. 


Thank you for stopping by and visiting. 

Cheers,
