star quilt finish

I can't believe I nearly forgot to share this quilt with you, because I love it so much!  It was actually done two weeks ago.

these fabrics had been sitting in my stash for a long time, and they are just too pretty for that.  It makes me so happy that they have been turned into a quilt for snuggling!

after washing and drying, this quilt is super soft!  I'm not sure if it is because of the less dense quilting than my normal, but I love the feel of it!  so much so, I'm almost sad to give it away, {here}.

a shot of the back :)

once again, Son #1 did a great job as quilt holder :)
I made the star 44" square, but it needed some added length to make it the size the hospital wants, so I added a piano key boarder to the top and bottom.
this makes approx. another 6 1/2 yards of stash used! :)

That's a beautiful quilt to show on the first day of spring. So many flowers. I find that flowery fabric always bring life to a room, even one in a hospital, and brighten the mood. You can be sure that a child will be very happy to receive it.
