Stars, stars and more stars

I'm hoping that my great nephew loves his new quilt that he will be getting for Xmas.  It has been awhile since his last quilt and he was due for a new one.  Ignore the shadow in the bottom part of the photo .....

Here it is sideways.
A closeup of the quilting called "Sea of Stars" by Christy Dillon of My Creative Stitches.
A cotton sheet was used for the backing and if he wants to reverse the quilt on his bed, he will have an interesting look there also.
This was a fun quilt to make ..... until those stars.  Ugh.  They were paper pieced and not my favourite to do.  This quilt got stalled because of those stars.  Now, it is done and ready for gifting.

Quilt Details:

It feels good to get this quilt done and ready for Xmas giving.

Cherish your day, cherish your life!
