Starstruck Quilt Along Finish!!!

Well, I made it in less than a year . . . not my longest Work in Progress ;)  This is my Starstuck Quilt Along quilt and I am so excited to share it all finished today!!!!  I finished the quilt top back when we were doing the Quilt Along, late last year, but it has been sitting waiting to be be quilted and bound and I am just thrilled that it made it back to the top of the pile and is now all done and oh so happy!!!!


Just in case you are new friend visiting, the Starstruck Quilt Along was my 2019 Quilt Along.  I host one every year.    Each of the posts for the Quilt-A-Long will always be on my blog.  You can follow these links to walk you through each step,  week-by-week on how to make a Starstruck Quilt , just in case you want to make your own.  And this one was fun as we made it medallion style, starting in the center and moving out, so you can stop at any point and make your quilt just the size you need ;)  

And this quilt really is a fun one to piece!!!  Of course, it always makes it more fun to be piecing along with lots of quilty friends, but you can still make your own.  The quilt has a lot of basic blocks and great techniques on making them.   And of course, all of the tutorials are step by step with full color pictures making it super easy to follow along.   And isn't it just so fun the way it all comes together ;)  So excited that I can finally say I have made a Medallion quilt!!!!


And I just love these happy, bright fabrics  :)  I used a Fat Quarter Bundle of  Harper's Garden by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda.  I love how the fabrics all read as one color, and yet have so much fun design in them.   And the colors are just so cheerful!!! This king size stunner is for sure gong straight on the bed to be enjoyed :)


When it came time to quilt, I decided I just needed to do something fast and quick.  It had sat around way to long already, and I knew if I started overthinking the quilting, it would go right back into the "to be quilted" pile again.  So I did my favorite loose feather design.  I just love all of the yummy flowy texture it gives the quilt!!!   So pretty ;)



And that is my Starstruck Quilt Along Quilt!!!   And I am so, so, so happy that I can now enjoy it as a finished quilt!!   Thanks again to everyone that quilted along with me, as that is what will always be the most special part of this quilt!!!  It truly is a wonderful reminder of so many great friends and each one of their beautiful quilts!!!!


I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!
