He will Shine like a Star

Harrys Star

This quilt is another Christmas gift, this time for a special young man who does not yet know how special he is. It started out as another star quilt and then became a need to pass on a message. It is sometimes hard for a person to find their special niche and realise that they will be greater than they ever imagined and so very valued. So, this is Harry's quilt.

I have made one of these quilts before and just wanted to give it another go. All fabric was drawn from stash and some of it has been lying around for quite some time. Being able to use the fabric and give the quilt as a gift is awesome. Knowing that it is well received is even better.

When quilting I outlined the centre yellow star with a yellow thread and then completed the rest of the quilt top in a grey thread, using an orange to match the backing in the bobbin. The photo above is supposed to show the quilting on the centre star but it is not that clear.

The backing and binding came from Connecting Threads. The star on the back is the label.

 Love the dotty binding.

This was also on my Q4 Finish Along List, so another win.
