With all the blocks of the Pegacorn quilt ready, it was time to assemble it into a top.
As usual, Burton was right at the centre of things, overseeing the process.
We both agreed that these stars needed more than simple sashing so I dug into the stash and found some grey and yellow fabrics to make cornerstone stars
Burton approved, so I got down to the business of sewing it all together. Being a baby quilt, it didn’t take long.
Apparently it was too long for Burton though. When it was time for a finished shot, he was nowhere to be found. Rupert kindly agreed to step in and show it off properly.
I think this one is so fun and sweet with its cheerful colours, and adorable little pegacorns.
I even managed to find them in flannel for the back, and I have more of the mottled blue from the border for binding.
I’m hoping to get to Mom’s for a quilting weekend on the 5th. But it’s weather dependent. There’s a lot of road between here and there, and some of it is really nasty when the weather turns. Too bad I don’t have a pegacorn of my own, I’d just fly there.

Very cute. The flannel backing will make it extra cozy.
I absolutely love it! It’s such a fun fabric and those cornerstones….wow. They add so much. It really is a beauty.
That is such a beautiful quilt!!! The star cornerstones add so much to the appearance. They are so simple and just enhance the design. What a wonderful quilt that will be.
What a perfect baby quilt! The yellow is perfect for the corner stars!!! Rupert matched the quilt nicely!
Rupert did a fantastic job standing in for Lord Burton. I think those gray and yellow stars were a brilliant idea Val. They are perfect. And the backing. Some little one is going to love this quilt.
