    Ready to be layered - the photos are brighter than the actual fabric - the blue is not as bright, and the "yellow" bits are gold metallic.
    I really like this one.

    Love the choice of fabric, this is very popular in the Marietta, GA quilt show this past weekend and they all looked great. Moosegirl

    That is spectacular! Reminds me of Van Gogh's Starry Night.

    Hey Dunster, that's good. I had a long think about the name & was trying to get "stars" in it - but "will-o'-the-wisp" seemed appropriate with the black background too.

    Katrine, I love the look and layout of your quilt. The black background really makes a rich look, doesn't it?

    Yes Ducky totally agree - it's the first time I used so much black, but definitely won't be the last, I've just ordered another fabric with black background. It makes it all so dramatic.

    I love the gold going arcross the middle, like stars. I wish we could see the true colors, my camera gives me trouble with that too. I want to make one of these with black in it too.

    Yeah it was a pain to photograph cos the design wall has a skylight/velux above it and it was all too bright. Tomorrow I'll get hubby to hold it up in natural light under the terrace roof to see if it comes truer.
