Stargazing: a finished sky

From its humble many-pieced beginnings all over my table in February: 

Stargazing has now grown into a fully-fledged quilt.
back and front of Stargazer
With a so-happy binding:
Stripy binding

and little hand-detailing:
perle cotton is wonderful
It rather likes the thought of keeping a lap warm, after having had its crinklification wash:
snuggly Stargazer
but it’s still all about the contrast.

Quite happy to hang out against a wall:
Finished Stargazer
The yellow back still lets the light shine through. Shine on, little Sun-lit stars.

I discussed the fabrics here.

    This is FANTASTIC. Love love love it.

  3. Oh this is so lovely! What a gorgeous little quilt! Great colours 🙂

  4. The sunlit star picture is really cool…I’ve never thought about putting together a quilt so that it looks different when light comes in the back. I wonder what some good applications would be for such a thing…

  5. I love this so much! The embroidery is such an amazing touch, too 🙂

  6. Love all those warm stars on the grey background…and the ‘missing’ stars in the middle 🙂

  7. How did I find your blog: I don’t know. I just wanted to say that I love this quilt!!

  8. Such a fun quilt! I love the placement, and colors. I started my own sparkle quilt which reminds me of this. Love! 🙂
