Star Capella Finish!

Last night I put the final stitches in the binding.  I will be able to completely remove this one off my sewing work surface and make progress towards finish on something else, yay!

I started by making my own label from twill tape.

I then used my folded corners ruler for my scrappy binding.  I decided NOT to use bias as the majority of the edges on this quilt  were bias.  All those funny angles, this was quite a challenge for winging it.  But it all came together and worked out.

Sorry for the glare!

I had fun quilting this one.  It was so full of angles, the stitching came easy from the sewing machine.  And to make it look like it had movement I did lots of loop-de-loops as well as C swirls and random asters and stars in the star.  A star comet moving through the atmosphere, with gases burning off in a swirly trail.

And I chose a more traditional backing for night time, but less traditional for a baby quilt.  It all came together, and here you see the label affixed as well.  Spring has sprung at my house, just look at those weeds!

I hope the parents to be will like it.  I will make the delivery tomorrow.  What are your thoughts?

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog!
