2016 Finished Quilts - Star Struck -Quilt 1

This was my first completion and only completion for 2015 from my UFO pile.  I am considering it a 2016 finished quilt as it came back from the long arm quilter in December.

Fortunately, I had written two posts on in while putting the borders on and getting it off to the long arm quilter, so I don't have much more to say about this one.  You can read about it here.

The nice thing about the following pictures is that they are much nicer and better than those in the posts.  

This first picture is showing the whole top out in my front yard.  The roses were in full bloom and I thought it would make a pretty background.  I used an old wooden ladder (see prior post for a better picture) to prop up a corner for a nice visual.

Each of the quilts I took one of it laid out flat, so you can see the whole design.

This is a close up of the corner, showing in detail the borders and the binding colors and prints.

These next two show the backing print used on the quilt.

Next are the specific facts about the quilt:

This is so pretty. My husband's mother's mother made a red and white quilt that I treasure and I want to make a similar one someday. I'm going to pin this and start thinking seriously about making a full-size quilt.
