Star Surround Top

With a crazy burst of time and energy on my hubby's last day off I finished my Star Surround quilt top. This was part of a quilt-a-long by Melissa from Happy Quilting.

This was a far as I was hoping to get today. I finished all nine blocks this morning. The baby, about 1.5 months old, was being so good that I kept going.

I finished the whole top today! You can see the pieces I had in this post written this morning. I love how it turned out! My dead, dying grass looks great with the colors on this quilt too. ;)

This is just a cool angle of it. The fabric, which I love, is from Basic Gray's PB&J for Moda.

The secondary pattern it makes is pretty sweet too. I just love everything about this one!
Cheers to Melissa at Happy Quilting for writing up another fabulous quilt-a-long! I am waffling on what to do quilting wise so this may sit for a few weeks while I figure it out. I'm thinking straight-ish lines or an allover pattern.

I'm linking up with Finish it Up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts.

  2. It is just stunning. What a beautiful finish. I am so glad baby was so good for you so you could get it all done. It is absolutely spectacular. I love these fabrics as well, that is such a great line. And I agree, the secondary patterns is on of my favorite parts of this design :) Great job getting it all finished, it is fantastic!!

  3. Oh wow Julie - it's gorgeous! I love everything about it. :-). I haven't decided how to quilt mine either, so it's probably going to have to wait a bit.

  4. I love it! I think it needs some Green Fairy Quilts type quilting. I keep coming back and looking at it and asking, "What would Judi do?" :)
