The Modern Stars Quilt

Finished Quilt Size: 53″ by 53″

My Modern Stars Quilt is finally complete!  I started this quilt project over a year ago!  The quilt pieces have been through two moves and two sewing machines!  I’ve lost pieces along the way and I even lost the design sheet for a few months before it magically resurfaced!  Then, when I finished the entire quilt top, I couldn’t find the quilt binding that I had pre-made and had to start over in mixing and matching!  After I finished the new binding, I found the original quilt binding in the Christmas decorations box.  Why was it in there?  I don’t know!  {I take a deep breath…} But, we’ve finally made it to the finish line together.   Here we are…

Here are some work in progress photos and there’s the binding I used for this quilt.  I couldn’t find a fabric I liked enough to bind the quilt, so I actually used the left over backing fabric to make the binding.  I had just enough fabric leftover from the backing to make the binding.  It was meant to be for this little quilt.  Love the little white flowers print.

There’s my good little boy.  He’s a great help at holding down the quilts so they don’t slide off the rail.  Occasionally, he pops his head up to ask, “Am I doing a good job?” as well as “How many gummy bears am I getting for this?”
