Here's the completed Hushabye stars quilt. I want to give it to it's new owner tomorrow, but have to come up with a name first, so I can label it!
My design was inspired by this quilt, but of course I had to design my own. I think this works really well as a pastel quilt with contrast.
I semi-fussycut some of the star centres to be sure that some of the owls, rabbits and ducks showed - though the owls are too big to fit completely.
I quilted it in white 50wt Guterman 100% cotton, with white bottomline in the bobbin. I used a different pattern inspired by a few drawings I've seen, which I think originally came from the inspirational Carla.
I'm calling the pattern 'sunny' - which is kind of ironic since I quilt late at night!
Here's a segment up close.
The rest of the household returned late tonight, so my peace is over (and as predicted, my list incomplete!) but I have some fun activities to look forward to in he next few days - first a facial and hair appointment alone, then baking, jewellery-making and reindeer-food preparation all with James and Eleanor.
