FO: Des Etoiles Rouges

This weekend saw me finish my beautiful disappearing hourglass quilt!

I have always loved the combination of red and white (or in the case, cream) and in this quilt it is phenomenal. The addition of the beiges and a warm, reddish coral just take it up a notch. While I do love a good scrappy quilt, there’s definitely something to be said for coordinating pre-cuts (this one was made from a Moda layer cake).


A border of plain cream, then a simple circle print I had in my stash finished it off nicely. And as you can see – I’m still looping on the long-arm quilter. Because this quilt was much larger than my last few, I went looser and loopier with the stitching. I also used a warm light brown thread, which makes the stitching stand out nicely.


The backing was another clearance bin find, though I did splurge a little on the binding… I wanted something that was the exact perfect shade of red. I found it, but I had to pay full price.


Now the quilt is complete and beautifying my bed (along with my  gorgeous floof monster.) This really is the best part of quilting!

    That is such a beautiful quilt! Love the design, the colors and the quilting. The fluffy cat just makes the quilt even prettier. He is even fluffier than I realized. So pretty!
