|Dancing Stars 60" x 77"|
This wonderful pattern is a free download from Amy's Creative Side. The blocks were made as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in 2013. Every month we were assigned a different color, and I made 10-12 blocks in each color.
Here is the back for the quilt, which used to be a big, full gathered skirt with two ruffles around the bottom. I took the whole skirt apart and ended up with batik panels that measured about 40" square, plus two long strips that are around 9" x 5-6 yards. I had to work around a couple of rips in the fabric, but otherwise it worked up beautifully for the back of this quilt.
I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times. Check it out for tons of amazing ideas and inspiration. I am also linking up to Needle & Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation and to Can I Get a Whoop Whoop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Your backing is so much fun, but not nearly as fun as the front! I love this quilt top!! It just makes me smile and want to do the happy dance. Lovely.ReplyDelete
Love the placement of the stars in your quilt. Very happy looking!ReplyDelete
Fantastic quilt, front and back. I love how you repurposed the fabric for the back.ReplyDelete
That's a crazy pattern, just amazing. And I love the skirted back!ReplyDelete
What a great idea to use the skirt as the backing. I'm not sure I would have thought of that, even though I have three full skirts that definitely would be big enough if I pieced them as you have done. Love the patchy stars, too!ReplyDelete
The backing is perfect for your dancing with the stars. This is a beautiful quilt.ReplyDelete
