Finish it up Friday!

Picnic Stars is complete and in the shop! I'm a sucker for a star quilt... they're just perfect for fussy cuts! (that, and they go together quickly!)

Someone had mentioned that i should maybe put some girly quilts in my shop... it would seem that most of the quilts i make are gender neutral, but leaning more to the boy side of things. I think this quilt fits the bill for girly!

The fussy cuts in the center of the stars are from the Picnic Pals line from Penguin and Fish and the star points are made with Zag Stripe in gold from Heather Bailey, as is the binding.

I straight line quilted with a variegated Sulky thread in all the sashing which made the stars pop nicely, then echoed around each star inside and out in yellow .

I lucked out with the backing fabric, finding this decor weight Amy Butler dot on sale at my LQS. It's the perfect match!

I'm quite happy with the result and i think it would make some little girl very happy! Or little boy... boys can like pink!

Yeah that's right, i totally bribed my three year old with Smarties...

Finish it up Friday party over at crazy mom quilts!

High fives for a semi productive week, i may be back later today, i've been cutting into this stack and finished off two blocks last night... (with a few problems) so if i can get more done i'll be back!
