Dancing Stars - all quilted and bound

We'd sent Dancing Stars away to be long-arm quilted, and the long arm quilter had sent it back a month or so ago. I finally finished binding it this week - here it is on a bed at my parents.

Pauline, our long-arm quilter really did a great job on this. Without us specifically requesting it, she'd used a variegated thread on the front, which beautifully highlights the bright colours of this quilt.

If you want to buy the PDF pattern, it is available on Etsy and on Craftsy.

Here's why I love this pattern.

- It's an easy way to make up a large quilt - this quilt is 88"x88" (it's being shown on a queen size bed in these pictures.)
- The instructions include an outline diagram, so you can try out your own colour schemes before making this quilt. Make it as colourful or as monochrome as you wish!

Have a great weekend! I brought some fabric to make a quilt, so there could be a bit of quilting in store for me!
