|Quilt measures 57"x48"|
I really like that I had enough of the darker print, an almost pointillist design, to bind the quilt. It adds a lot of interest to the back while blending with the outer border on the front.
I quilted in the ditch around the stars. Then quilted diamonds in the large white squares where the blocks came together. The secondary diamond design created is fun :)

The quilting is quite unlike what I'd originally planned, shown here.

I'm working on the label now, testing whether to write the message with Sharpie or embroider it. Each has its pros and cons, so we'll see.
