    Cascading Stars

    Just finished this quilt from a kit I purchased over 10 years ago. It is much smaller than it was supposed to be because I had misread the instructions and had cut several squares too small from the first color. So I had to reduce everything down which resulted with a much smaller quilt. It was the first time I had ever made a pieced binding. I had enough scraps to make a pillow sham and mug rug.

    Whoa, that gorgeous!! I love the gredations of color and the 3D look. It looks like a piecing challenge. And your pillow sham and mug rug are eye-popping pretty as well. Your sewing room is a dream space, which I'm sure you are pleased as punch with.

    That turned out very pretty. I like it! The pieced binding really finishes off the whole quilt and makes it look fabulous.

    Beautiful use of gradations of rainbow colors. I can see that that pattern was a challenge; but, the outcome is very nice.

    Gorgeous colors,love the binding and use of scraps plus the pillow is fabulous and even a mug rug. You outdid yourself though you miscut as you mentioned but you made up for it with these little extras. Nice job!!!!!

    It's hard to believe it sat for 10 years. This is one gorgeous quilt. Beautiful job and a good use of the remaining scraps. We all have oops days.

    I really like the pieced binding. Trying to figure out how you made it. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
