    Donation quilt top ready for quilting

    My brain is in a fog today. Went shopping for fabric to back this quilt and miscalculated (again) and only bought 8 yards and I needed 9. I bought all there was on the bolt. Oh well will use it for another quilt.

    This quilt was a Quilters Club of America Mystery quilt and was fun and easy to make. I am sure to do this pattern again.

    love the way you used the white-white and light gray on the stars--it makes the stars just glow.

    Very nice!

    Piece your back using what you purchased and any left over fabric you have.

    This is a simple but extremely effective pattern! Someone is going to love it. It is the colors of our local high school, where it would make a great fund raiser. Hmm Maybe I'll have to do one.

    I love anything with stars. Yours is great. Hope it goes to someone in the military or more importantly a VA hospital.

    I agree with gingerd - piece the back with leftover fabric to make your purchased fabric work.

    Usually that is when I start using the fabric leftovers on the back.
