Finished top

.... And then I had 8 star points. Which background should I use?
I wanted to use fabric from my stash.

A dark pink? .. hmm nope.

Mustard?... nice but it doesn't have that WOW!

A dark grey?.. Also nice. But what is under the dark grey fabric. Yes BLUE!

The blue is calling me. I can't help it.
A light blue? ...no.
Yes this is the fabric I like, a darker petrol blue! Yes.

The star is coming together...

Only the tricking thing from a lone star is the center. It's the last sewing part. I'm always a bit nervous for it. Afraid that I sewed a bra!

Pinning carefully.
And there it goes..
pfeww! I'm satisfied. The center is nice and flat!

I also used in this quilt solids from Kaffe fasset. I love to mix them up with Kona solids. It gives such a nice Amish feel! The center is from a Fasset solid. So are the background and the green points.
I didn't have enough of the blue/petrol fabric. I used two different fabrics.

And ta dahh.. finished. My fingers are itching to quilt it. I love to quilt on solids. It brings the quilt alive! Unfortunately it has to wait. Some other projects need to be finished first.
