Star Struck Backing

Happy Veteran's Day!




I finally stopped by my LQS the other day and picked up some fabrics for the back of Star Struck. They had the perfect yellow fabric for this quilt, and even better, the fabric was on sale. ;-)

The backing made up of the new yellow fabric, leftover piano border, 2 leftover blocks, and a purple fabric that came from my stash. That green bundle on top is the binding. I like to prepare the bindings at the same time as the backing. So as soon as it's quilted, the binding goes on. This way I won't loose the momentum of getting the quilt finished. :-)

Great colors. I am working on a starstruck. How many blocks did you end up with?

Wow! Those are some fabulous colours in your star quilt.

I'm blog-hopping my way through Chookyblue's SSCS list to see who else is playing along.

Fabulous finish... I think the very best part of finding a backing is when it's on sale! Way to go!!
