Scrappy Stars {A Finished Quilt}


Hi there! I hope you all had a great weekend! 

I am finally finished with my Scrappy Stars quilt!!! Wahoo! It has been a long time in the making.  I pretty much started calling this one my masterpiece because it became my favorite quilt I have made so far.  I love the saturated colors of this quilt and I love the fact that it is seriously scrappy.

 I decided to do a flannel chevron backing for the quilt and I really feel like it compliments the front.  


I sent this on over to my "binding fairy" and she put on a yellow binding fabric that I love.  She also did a lovely job on the binding! Nothing beats a good hand binding--in my opinion! :) Most fabrics from this quilt are from High Street by Moda.  



 I quilted this using grey thread and I did it on a long-arm machine.  I decided to go with a simple quilting design--since I wasn't too familiar with quilting on a long-arm.  I am happy with the way it turned out! :)  I love the texture that it left on the quilt and I can't wait to wash it and see how it changes even more! :)

There is definitely another star quilt in my future--I pretty much just love how these look and I can't wait to make another one!

A binding fairy? Where do such creatures hide so I can find one? Your quilt is lovely. I love star quilts - there are lots in my past and more in my future!

Very pretty! I've been eying the High Street Line here and there. Love the promise of the summery colors when there's still snow all around.

The quilt is stunning, both the design and fabrics. Dang! I need a binding fairy and also one that gets rid of dust bunnies!

I'm also curious about a binding fairy. Is she like a tooth fairy, and if I leave my unbound quilt under my pillow, she'll sneak in and finish it? ;-) It looks fabulous!

What a gorgeous finish! I am glad to hear you went with a flannel for the backing and love it. The quilting looks very pretty, Lindsey! Great job!
