Wish upon a star

   Name: Wish Upon A Star
Design: Wonky stars
Size: 53" by 62"
Quilted: by me with Aurifil 50 wt in white, irregualr grid
Fabric:  Various prints in blue  and low volume and white background fabrics
Binding and Backing: Pieced back in blues and dark blue floral binding all from the stash.

I finished this one on the weekend.  It is a commission quilt destined to be a retirement gift.  I was asked to make a lap quilt in blues.  And here it is.  Scrappy blue wonky stars.  4" squares.  I used a mixture of low volume and white background fabrics and then put it altogether.  I quilted the dickens out of it in Aurifil 50 wt in white.  I used an irregular grid and I am smitten.  It is something that Latifah Safir does.  I was inspired.  It gives great texture!

The back is pieced because I am trying to use up stuff that is lingering.
All done and ready to deliver.  And I might add that it is done before my self imposed deadline!
