Cosmic Happenings top

The top is finished! :) I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, though it's really difficult to tell that I have some metallic fabrics in the center of each "star" -- they tend to have glare, even when I don't use a flash to take the photo. I'm going to look for a backing soon and then tackle the machine quilting, though I don't think the quilting will be as intricate as some of my other pieces; the stars need to be the main focus in this one.

So far, every step of this top has been done by machine, though the "twiddling" could have been done by hand if I'd chosen to do it that way. The quilt may very well end up as a gift, so I'm also considering trying my hand at a miniature variation, since it's such fun to make these blocks. We'll see. ;)

  2. Thanks, Michelle! :) It's really hard to photograph the purples I used for the background; they tend to look blue.

  3. Great looking quilt Sandy, I love the 3-D effect of the rays.

    They almost look like dahlia petals to me.

    Can't wait to see it all quilted.

  4. Thanks, Sandi. :) I've begun the quilting now, so it shouldn't be too much longer. ;)
