Star quilt

This is the quilt I talked about yesterday. I made it for The Boy's bed, when he had a wee toddler bed. When he moved to a regular sized bed, I reconstructed it to fit, but I never liked how that turned out. I took it apart when he stopped using it, knowing that 'someday' I would put it back to it's original state (well, with a better backing than originally). That day was today.
This is a simple quilt of two cotton fabrics arranged in 10" squares, for a total size of 50"x 70". The fabrics are a plain pale yellow, and a pale blue with pale yellow shooting stars. Unfortunately I didn't get a good close-up pic to show you that. Today I backed the quilt with a pale yellow flannel that matches the original yellow color pretty well, and bound it with more of the plain yellow cotton. I used a low loft poly batting and hand tied it with yellow embroidery thread.

This cold snap better end soon, or I think I will end up making 10 more quilts!

Man, I think I'd better start tying my quilts instead of quilting them, because it takes me an average of two years to finish one.
