Skyline quilt

Last Sunday - at Sunday Stitchers - I took along my Project #12.  

I wasn't able to get it finished in time..there has been a lot happening...but when this number was drawn out last month - I had a top with no side borders.  So I have managed to add the borders, pin it, quilt the vertical lines and most of the horizontal lines (apart from where I want it to be the aqua thread), bound it and have started to fill in the night sky with stars.



I want to add a moon and many more stars, but a few people have commented on it and I thought I'd show you the "in progress" shots.

The quilt is based on a pattern in  Tula Pink's 100 Modern Quilt Blocks book.   I've adapted it to fit existing hangers and spaces on my walls.




a sample of the night time stars....many more to be added....

Not great photos - I will get better ones when I'm finished.
