Star Light, Star Bright

I don't think I've shared this one yet - so it's about time I did!

This is a quilt top that I made about 9 years ago (yes you read that right...9 years...) with fat quarters from my stash. I picked up the fabrics here and there because they were bright colored or had a celebration-type theme about them. I used a pattern called Pointless Wonder and had fun cutting and swapping the prints around so that each block is a mixture of fun!

Once complete, the top sat and sat due to a busy schedule and limited ability at finishing quilts at the time. It finally became a finished quilt last Fall and it's been the perfect quilt for snuggling during the colder months.

It was pretty quick to quilt, for all its size, as I got to try out Momm's mid-arm machine. Sweet! Star Bright was a great test quilt for this as it was lower on my priority list, but a good size for experimenting. I took this home over Thanksgiving weekend and managed to get the whole thing quilted in a few days! The machine was fun to play with and smooth in the free-motion quilting. Thanks Momm! :D

I love finishing up UFOs on my list and am happy to be able to snuggle with this quilt!
