Starry starry nights

"Starry starry nights
Paint your palette blue and grey.........." (with aplogies to Don Maclean's lyrics)

The Q/S quilt below was commenced in 2002 as a Friendship Swap on another site.The 15 blocks I received were not sufficient for the bed I had in mind,so with a few planning hiccups along the way........
e.g:
an 18 inch block that was to be the focal point,until it got "too hard" to design four triangular blocks to offset the main one!
I used two fabrics to sash the blocks in the hope of achieving a degree of unity and used a star fabric for the backing.

I had already over run my original finish date,which was July last year,so I planned for April 18 this year,and managed to come in under schedule,a first for me.

Within 10 minutes of placing the quilt on the bed for photos,Jesse (our black "panther) had checked it out,and given the quilt his "Paw of approval"

That quilt is so nice. I think blue and white always looks so nice.
