I started this little quilt last May and finally quilted it up. I will be donating it to the Ninigret Quilters' silent auction at our show in October. We affectionately refer to each other as Ninnies, hence the blog post title!
Here are the signature blocks that produced the bonus triangles that became these stars. I don't always save those triangles, but I know I should.
The butterfly print on the back was a "prize" from the Fall round of the UFO group on Threadbias. Isn't it lovely? I folded 5" squares into triangles to act as corner pockets to hold a dowel to hang it any which way. The mustard color squares came from a charm swap stack.
I quilted it with a peachy So Fine thread from Superior that blends with everything. I used a walking foot for the straight lines through the white and the gentle curves through the stars. No marking required - my favorite kind of quilting!
I'm not sure how I feel about the gray binding, but it is done, so that's that. The gray print came out of my fat quarter (or less) pile, too.
