Proudly presenting.....

Summer Stars!

After an extended period of hand quilting.....

Thank you Daniel for holding up this monster!


 on a cold Melbourne afternoon

I have a finish!


It is a big one....64 inches by 84 inches!


The backing is pieced with a small piece of spot...


added to a wonderful piece of floral vintage fabric I 

had been saving!


And my 'stand-by' binding....


Stripes!

Finally, some of the 100 or more circles I hand 

quilted!


Happy sewing!
