FO: Night sky

I did it! With the a little help from our favourite ginger snooperviser…

I had the Night Sky quilt done and dusted by the end of the weekend.

Phew! When we were putting together fabrics, I didn’t realized how wintery this one would end up looking.

It’s a nice size – about 75 inches square. And the block was super easy – made from two 10 inch squares, it’s easy to whip them out when you get into a rhythm. The pattern is Big Sky, if anyone else out there wants to make one.

The clearance section was a little lean when I went looking for a backing for this one, but I managed to find this pretty black floral that worked well enough.

And can we talk about that binding for a minute? I’ll let you in on a little secret – I love striped fabrics for binding. I don’t know why – I just do. This one came from the stash, and I just love how it echoed the subtle green and aqua elements of the lighter fabrics in the centre of the quilt.

And this should be the last quilt I complete this year. Nothing else in my project list is even close to being a top. And work has gotten crazy (companies trying to get things wrapped up before the end of the year/holidays). I’ll do a retrospect of all my completed quilts closer to the end of the month.

    What an absolutely beautiful quilt!!! Striped bindings are just so special. They take the quilt up another notch or two. Love everything about this quilt.

    How spectacular!!!You make me want to dig out my winter quilt and get back to work on it. Dad always liked striped binding too. It really does add a special something to the project.

  3. I am with you on the stripe bindings!! There’s a quilt shop in MN that has an entire section of striped fabric, I’m not talking a bookcase section, a long row of all colors. I think I swooned when I saw it! LOL. Love the finish, it’s perfect for winter.
