Colour My World Challenge Quilt

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!!
