Star Light Star Bright Mini

With Quilt Con just around the corner it was time to ship my MQG Mini Swap quilt ;)  And now that it is off to find its secret friend, I can share it here ;)    So here it is, my Star Light Star Bright Mini!!!  Isn't it just so fun :)

   I decided to call it the Star Light Star Bright mini because that is just what it is.  Lots of Light fabrics making a wonderfully fun background and lots of Happy Bright Fabrics making those dancing stars!!  And just in case you are curious, I shared the process of how I made this little mini top right back here ;)

And when it came time to quilt, I decided on a straight line grid.   It takes a little while as these are 1/2" grid lines, but it is so totally worth it.  I just love the balance it gives to the random layout of the stars and chopped up background.

And doesn't it  add the coolest texture!!!   I just love it!!!

And here is hoping that my super secret partner loves it just as much ;)  I had so much fun making it up!!!  I just loved the happy bright colors, you can't help but smile when you are sewing with such happy fabrics!!!   I haven't done a swap in a while and this was just a joy to get back into them ;)   Here is to finishing up this mini and looking forward to many more!!

And I had my own special package arrive as well :)  How adorable is this mini!!!  Thank you so much Jerriann Massey!!!   It is so cute and I just love that the heart is a home.  Perfect for our family :)

Thank you so much for popping in today ;)

I hope you have a very Happy Quilting weekend!!!

Linking up this finish to Amanda's, Sarah's, and Myra's ;)
