Night Sky Quilt Along Finished


I finished my Night Sky quilt be Thimble Blossoms!
And not a day too soon.
I was playing with Jana M who hosted the Night Sky Quilt Along!


I used an assortment of my American Jane fabric from my stash.
The fabrics are all pretty busy...
so I was nervous that it would be overload...



But I think it turned out just fine.


I had originally thought about making up my own block arrangement...
but after playing with other options...
I thought the original layout on the pattern worked just fine.

There are no borders on the pattern but I am considering
adding a border to it.

I am so glad that I played along on this one!
Thanks Jana! It was fun and also seeing everyone else's quilt 
in progress on Instagram!



Now, I am back to working on Sail Away!
 I stopped working on this in September 
while sewing the rows together... so I just 
need to finish that and add the borders! It was on my
 list to finish before the end of the year. I think 
I will get it checked off soon!

Each is a great quilt. I love, love, love the sailboats. The original design of the other quilt is great and no your stash did not lead to print overload - great job.

As I said on IG I LOVED your quilt! You're so fast, you just need to share how could you make this top so quickly! And you have some WIPs! Thank you so much for playing along! I'm in trouble now most of the friends I invited to quilt along had their top completly done! I'm half way on both of my versions!

Now I love American Jane and have made two quilt tops now with her collections - but in looking at the big picture of your Night Sky quilt - I wouldn't have guessed it was her stuff. Only up close do I recognize her signature look - but it came together in a quilt top that is wonderful and blended so well together. Great finish!

Love your Night Sky! I am watching the QAL quilts across blog land and very tempted to make one of these. Yours is so gorgeous, fresh and fun!
