    How cool is this? Real cool! Love the quilting too. The large scale rose works great as the back ground for the stars.
    Re purposing those curtains turned out great.

    EDIT: I forgot to say I like the quilt name too!

    What a brilliant quilt. Love the idea of re-cycling the curtains and you picked the perfect colour to bring it to life. Fine work....just goes to prove you don't need expensive fabric to make a stunning quilt. Bravo!
