Star gazing is a Bonnie Hunter pattern in her book scraps and shirt tails. This is finish number 27 for the year for me. Many of the scraps for this quilt are upcycled shirts. I cut it out in 2014. It has been a top since 2017 after a back and forth visit to the ufo closet. It's a big quilt 82 x 82 and used 22 yards of fabric. I made mine one row bigger across.
I think what happened was, I started this quilt as a the free pattern on Bonnie's site, and, I made the number of blocks for that one which doesn't have sashings. Then her book came out, and, the same pattern had sashings, and, I couldn't decide if I wanted sashings. So, I put it aside.
I decided I would do the sashings and get it off the UFO list.
I did a free form pattern on the longarm. I used a sheet from the thrift store for the back, and black binding. I used a machine to attach the binding.
This quilt waited a long time for it's turn to be in the spotlight as a finished quilt. This will part of my phd 20 ufo project
I like the sashing better, the sashing frames the blocks. 27 finished quilts this year, you're making so much progress! Looks like we'll staying home the first part of 2021, it will be interesting how many more quilts you finish. Happy stitching!ReplyDelete

I absolutely LOVE that pattern and your quilt turned out beautifully, maggie!!ReplyDelete
So eye-catching, Maggie! Great job!ReplyDelete
It's so beautiful, Maggie! What a massive undertaking. It seems to me that you let this one "marinate" in the UFO closet for exactly as long as it needed. I love heavily pieced scrappy quilts but they can be tricky to pull off with so many pieces in all different colors and fabrics. You really nailed this one; it smolders and twinkles and is just really successful in so many ways. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!ReplyDelete
It is absolutely gorgeous! The sashings are a great addition! Wowza!ReplyDelete
Beautiful quilt! Have a great day!
Hi Maggie, congratulations on your finish. I think that the sashing add a lot to it. Take care.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on a fun and scrappy finish! Sometimes you just have to let them marinate a bit before you know the direction you want to go with a project.ReplyDelete
