Nutmeg Stars Quilt

I've been talking about this one for a while - and now my Nutmeg Stars quilt is quilted, bound, fini! I thought the beautiful foliage would be a great backdrop for this quilt of blues and greens!


I used a FQ bundle of Color Me Happy and some earlier pieces by Vanessa Christenson along with a few stash fabrics.


The pattern is by Fig Tree Quilts and you can find out more about the pattern and how I changed it here.


I quilted it fairly heavily with swirls and pebbles in the background...


and bound in one of my current binding favorites - Art Gallery Squared Elements.


Pretty happy with this one!
