I named it Starstruck - with all the stars around the center, I thought it was an appropriate name.
This is number 25 in my series of upcycled blues quilts.
I was thinking when I made this one that I was almost done. However, this one is only 25, but I kept going until at least 42 which is the one I’m working on as I write this blog post.
The stars on the outside around the checkerboards were quite something to make! But I decided to go ahead and make them.
I worked on various options, trying to NOT use these double stars, but I didn’t like them as much as this one.
I quilted this whole quilt with an overall swirl design.
The back - as usual - is pieced.
There is some shadow see-through from the back sunflowers.
When it’s lying on the bed, however, it doesn’t show through as you can see in the quilt roll pictures towards the bottom!
The quilt roll!
You can see the quilting nicely in this picture.
