And my son loves it.
The light isn’t great, as the sun was going down on a cloudy day, but I dragged the kids outside to hold it over the deck edge anyway.
This quilt has been quite a long time in the making. It started when I made some paper pieced stars that were posted on the Wombat Quilts blog. Her finished quilt is here. I loved the scrappy background, but didn’t want more paper piecing, so mine is improv quilting. I also decided that it needed a moon, and some trees beneath the stars.
Today I stitched down the last bit of the binding, after an overnight wait because I inexplicably didn’t have any dark green thread. Just a couple more thread ends to bury and I can pop it in the washer to get soft and crinkly. Then it is going on my older son’s bed tonight!
