quilt monday

 If you saw my post from a few weeks back, you shouldn't be surprised that I did not wait long to get this beauty quilted.

I LOVE this quilt.
 L-O-V-E love.

I actually didn't plan on making the stars. But then I didn't cut out the extra background pieces and found this scrap of Kona which was perfect. 

I struggled with how to quilt this; especially with the colours. 
Go with light thread and have it stand out on the dark or go dark and have it stand out on the light?

I actually started quilting it in a dark grey with a totally different pattern.
 Which I quickly ripped out.

The background is an ivory. 
I had the perfect brown based black print for binding.

I made this for my niece's wedding. 
She's almost as Disneyland crazy as me.

I used a flannel as the backing; it's the perfect lap quilt. 
And now I need to make one for myself!

Happy Monday :)
