It is finally done!! I am so excited to share this finish with you!
Some of you will remember me making these blocks back in 2012 when M-R from Quilt Matters had her Colour My World Challenge. Every month, we were challenged to work with a specific colour. I chose to make stars using only the colour from that specific month. I had so much fun making these blocks.
In January 2013, I was talking with my mom about how I was going to put the blocks together into a quilt. She suggested using a solid to frame each block. I loved the idea. Once the blocks were framed, I simply laid them out in the order I made them and then sewed them together. I had to move a couple around because I didn't want the white one on the outside edge of the quilt.
My mom worked her magic once again and quilted it for me back in October. I think she had just as much fun quilting each block as I did when I pieced them! Every block is different. I think we make a great team, my mom and I.
Here are some close-up photos of some of my favourite blocks:
I finally finished putting the binding on last week and this morning was great weather to get some photos outside.
Here is a photo of the label I made with my embroidery machine. It isn't sewn on yet but I wanted to share it with you.
I am so pleased with my quilt! Thank you M-R for putting the challenge out there, it was so much fun!!
