On A Roll

This has been a great week for finishing things.  Feels good!

This was one of the things I completed.  The quilt top was finished back at the beginning of December.  I’m calling this one Stars Abound 2.  (The original Stars Abound can be seen here.)

The fabrics are from the Tidbits and Treasures line by Piece O’ Cake Designs (Robert Kaufman) and I used Kona White for the background.  I love the bright and happy colors!

It took me a little bit to decide what to do for the backing.  In the end I decided on a lovely yellow print that reads more as a solid.  It’s warm and buttery and just makes me long for the warm sunshine.

The binding is done in (what else?) a cheerful red dot.  For my bindings, I use this tutorial.  I always machine stitch the binding to the front of the quilt, and about 90% of the time I hand stitch the back.  I love how the invisible stitching looks.  Such a clean look.

Stars Abound 2 is currently looking for a new home.  She’s listed in the shop!  (sold)

Edited to add:  The pattern for Stars Abound is now available in my shop!
