This is the Musical Stars baby quilt. Two musician friends, a trumpeter and a viola player, are expecting a baby in October. These two fabrics, spotted by my husband when we were in a quilt shop a few months ago, were the starting point for the whole quilt.
The quilt top and the backing were pieced in a very short time in July, but it took longer for me to get around to doing the quilting. I got that done last week, then finished up the binding on Saturday. The quilting is very simple, mostly stitch-in-the-ditch. The quilt just needs to be washed up, then we can present it to the parents.

I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times where you can see all sorts of amazing quilting inspiration! On Friday I will also link up to "Let's Make Baby Quilts!" at Michelle's Romantic Tangle.
