Lots to Celebrate

This was my last quilt of 2008, but I'm only blogging it now that it has been received.

I intentionally made 4 extra bento box blocks when I was making Sue's Quilt, so I could use them in a mini. I added an extra round to each to get a better size and spread of colour, then got out my black and white prints for a play.
I've obviously still got the background stippling bug...
But managed to use some of my favourite King Tut variegated in the starry border.
I was actually finishing this on New Years' Eve when I came up with the name. Initially it wa inspired by the stars, but also the date, and the fact that the recipient of this (part of my Pay It Forward commitments) has been celebrating some long-awaited news, and will be celebrating a new arrival later in the year.
Tip your head to the right because Blogger decided this should be a portrait image...

I love this quilt and the black and white star fabric. I'm in the middle of a black, white and blue bento box myself :0)

Hope you're keeping cool.
