Starlit Evening

Sorry for the picture overload today, but I'm so excited to have this quilt finished. I love Anna Maria Horner's vibrant fabrics and this seemed the perfect pattern to show them off - Starlit Evening from Living Large 2 by Heather Mulder Peterson.



I started with the latest collections - Dowry and True Colors and added more AMH from earlier collections that I had stashed.


The quilting is a Paisley design and I avoided quilting over the cream strips.


The blocks and "sashing" are a bit smaller than the original pattern. At first I decided that I didn't want a really big quilt. But as it progressed, I was so loving it that I changed my mind and made a pretty big quilt - which gave me the opportunity to add more beautiful fabrics. It's about 64" x 80".



One of my favorite Dowry prints is on the back...


Here's the full quilt...


Thanks for stopping by!!!
