    Eye popping, knock your socks off bright

Size:  176.8 KBMy DD and I made this round robin quilt last fall from "Blocks, Borders, Quilts". I had the multi-colored fabric in my stash (I'd bought it because I liked it--had no idea what I'd ever use if for) and purchased the tonal colors for the stars. I wanted this to be bright and fun so used black to make the colors pop.

Size:  198.1 KBI had other fabric for the backing, but found this cheater cloth on sale. It was perfect . I used variegated thread to outline quilt the stars and quilted stars in the black corners. You can't see them well in the picture. I used decorative stitches in the black border between the stars and the outside border and on the binding. I didn't think think I'd ever finish stitching the binding it was taking so long. I hate doing the binding and just want it to go quick so I'm finished.

    I have some bright, crazy fabric that I bought some time ago. Of course, I had no idea what to do with it. You've inspired me and given me an idea or two. Thanks so much for sharing your bright, happy quilt!

    Just love every thing about this quilt, the pattern, the colors, it is just great! I hate to sew the binding by hand so I never do! just machine them and no one ever complains, I don't do quilt shows! so no quilt police! HAHA
