Oh My Stars - Finished

This top was last seen on my Blog back at the end of February
and it has taken until now to get the motivation to quilt it.
I kept using the excuse that I was waiting to find the right backing fabric.
Well I did, last week, in my stash!
Sometimes it takes a while to find the inspiration :)
The fabric used for the stars was all American Jane Fabrics from various lines
so I knew that the backing too was going to be in American Jane Fabrics.
I just couldn't pick one, so I picked a few :o)

(Sorry, it is a bit hard to get a good photo with the sun glaring on the white)

I decided to pull out 3 FQ's (of AJ Fabrics) and make a scrappy binding.
This quilt was made as part of the
Oh My Stars! (A Quilt-Along)
I'm a little late on the finish but it's done and I am in LOVE with the
Vintage feel to this one.
Finished Size - Approx 70" Square

And what is a "finished post" with out the customary "Quilt Roll"
Now, there is one more quilt I want to get finished,
can you guess which one?
Hugs, Sharon

  8. OMG you are amazing Shaz,that quilt looks awesome,love the fabrics you chose ,what a beautiful finish,well done my friend.xx

  9. Wow! That's a big quilt for a lot of cool hand stitching around the stars. Love the patchwork back and scrappy binding - perfect for this one.

  10. Oh my Sharon, you know what I'm going to say!!! I LOVE IT.
    The backing is a quilt front on it's own!I adore that hand quilting. You must be so proud of this one.. well done. Therese xx

  11. Oh My Stars... Oh My Goodness!!
    Sharon you've done an awesome job on this, and the pics are great! Congrats on such a finish!
    The backing fabric was giggling at you from its stashy hiding spot, LOL
    How about sprinkle some of your Finishing Fairy Dust over my way?!

  12. I do love star quilts and yours is wonderful! Love the fabrics you chose and the hand quilting.

  13. That is so pretty. I didn't even start mine but I have the fabric so I guess it is a UFO for now. Congratulations on finishing yours.

  14. This is so darn gorgeous Sharon!!! I am *so* glad you decided to go the hand-quilted route on this one ... it just adds that *handmade* element that machine quilted ones don't always seem to have - and on this one it is *perfect*!!! ... I haven't started mine, but I *do* have all the patterns printed out, and I have made one of the stars (with all HST's ... in the 12 in size) and really enjoyed making that one then - looking forward to making my own one day ... though that probably won't be until next year some time :)

    Congratulations on such a fantabulous finish!!! Hugs!

  15. Its fabulous, stars are my fav and I love the fabric you used :)

  16. That is a beautiful quilt Sharon.

  17. It is a beautiful quilt, hand quilting makes a quilt!

  18. Its beautifully quilted and I agree sometimes it takes quite a while to work out what to do.

  19. LOVE the squares for backing!!!!!!!!!
