    Scrappy Quilt - Pulsar is quilted

    I made this quilt top over the winter and recently had it quilted. It already seems nice and cozy, like one that's been in the family forever. I just need to bind it.
    I used a variety of scraps. Dark navy, indigo, and plum for the star points; peach and tan as the light colors; and then a good assortment of medium-valued colors to form strong diagonal patterns across the quilt.
    The quilting is subtle, but done in peach thread with a cloud-like design. I like how it looks on the back.
    The pattern is from a 1994 Quiltmaker magazine.

    Happy sewing!

    truly wonderful quilt. The thought of planning that out scares the geebers out of me.
    If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours!

    Very attractive. The dark sections of the stars really pull everything together.

    Oh how I wish I could wrap my brain around something like this. It's a beautiful top! I love the dark star points.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I just kept looking at it. I like the colors, and the pattern. It has such pretty and comforting colors in it.

    Such a pretty scrappy quilt. I love the colors you chose, the peach and tan neutrals are really lovely with the dark blue and plum star points and various colors.

    You have an eye for color that I really envy - beautiful placement of fabrics!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
