I signed up to Rhondas Finish Along earlier in the year and declared that in the first quarter I would finish two tops that have been hanging around for ages, waiting to be turned into quilts.
The first one I finished a while ago and blogged about http://shevvylondon.blogspot.com/2012/01/first-finish-of-year.html and amazingly, today I have finished the second one! Hooray. And there is still over a month to go to the deadline.
This quilt even has a name, Twinkle Twinkle Scrappy Star. It was made using up all my scrap triangles, including those one you get when making binding and join two strips together.
I just did a stipple to quilt it as I have done a lot of heavy quilting for my last few quilts. I say just, but I have to say I really enjoyed doing it and I am really happy with how it turned out.
The backing is just one big piece of something I picked up somewhere cheap and found in my stash.
The binding is also scrappy and made up of all leftover bits from other quilts, green blue, orange, gold, whatever I had basically.
I think I've mentioned before how much I love working with scraps - this quilt show why. It finished at 44x52 inches. I haven't washed it yet so don't know how much it will shrink as I am out of colour catchers. This will need them I think with all the random bits in it, something is bound to bleed!
