Starry Eyed Quilt Top

Here is the whole quilt top.  Each block is 16 inches so this is a nice sized quilt.  I wanted the sun shining on the quilt, but I spent too much time this morning and afternoon doing my much neglected house chores and the sun had gotten too high in the sky and the space I normally use for taking my quilts photos was in the shade.  So I asked my hubby to hold it up in the front yard for me where the sun was shining.

But I didn't realize how windy it was.  It kept making the quilt top wrap around him or flare out.

We ended up laying it in the grass.

While it was on the grass, my hubby said, "I like this one."  I actually had to have him repeat what he said because very seldom do our tastes in quilts align and I had to make sure he was talking about the quilt that was laying on the grass in front of us.  Then I told him it was a Christmas quilt and he said, "Really?"  so I had to show him all the Christmas prints.  He said he still liked it.  :)

I have to work on another top for someone else before I can progress with this one, but I should be able to baste both of them at the same time.  I will keep you posted.



  1. That is a lovely size for a quilt. Do you quilt them yourself on a longarm?

  2. That's beautiful. And how nice is it that your husband loves it too. Great job.

  3. How beautiful! You did such a lovely job, and I'm glad you like my pattern! Thank you for sharing. :)

  4. Stunning!!! I'm with your hubby. This is a wonderful quilt. I printed the pattern from The Bakeshop. Might work for an upcoming project I'm planning.
