Seeing Stars--a finished top!

For the past seven weeks, I have been participating in the Seeing Stars QAL, hosted and designed by Melissa Corey at Happy Quilting. It has been great fun seeing everyone's version of Melissa's design, and I'm happy to be adding my finished quilt top to the display.

64.5" x 80.5"
My quilt is smaller than Melissa's 80" x 80" design, mostly because I didn't have enough background fabric for the whole quilt. I wanted to use up some of my older Christmas fabrics, and the best background fabrics were two pieces of beige poinsettia prints that measure almost 4 yards combined. You can see the two different backgrounds in these close-up photos of some favorite blocks.

It was great fun to take part in this wonderful QAL. Melissa's instructions were very clear and easy to follow, and I have loved seeing so many beautiful versions of her design.

I'm sharing my finished top with the Seeing Stars QAL link-up. I'm also linking up to Design Wall Monday at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts, Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt, and Moving It Forward at Em's Scrapbag. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects that everyone is sharing!

  1. I really like your Christmas Stars. The two backgrounds are so similar they add just enough variation to make the background interesting!

  2. Very pretty! What a great way to use up those older fabrics, though they certainly do not look old in that setting.

  3. Your quilt top is so festive!!! What a wonderful Christmas quilt this will make!!! I love your two backgrounds, it adds some wonderful movement and texture. Just fantastic!!! I am so glad you quilted along with me and I can't wait to see how you quilt this up!!!
