A Finish..... finally

Wow, what is my world coming to? Two posts in one day, and I think maybe a post every day for the past week or so........ not bad, not bad at all. The weather finally cleared up enough for me to be able to get outside and get some pictures. I have been working on this quilt for so long, since May of 2013, according to past records here on the blog, that it feels rather strange to be no longer working on it. Her she is, in all her glory...... announcing....... Meteor Shower!!!

 Here's a closer look at all the fun colours in the center of the quilt. I had so much fun playing with all of these bright colours. It's such a sunny happy quilt. Every time I look at it, I smile. As stated many time before, the credit for the design of this quilt goes to Judy Martin. The pattern for this is found in her book Scraps. I think the instant love I felt for this quilt was in large part due to the colours, so I followed the colours she used fairly closely.
Here's one of the corners. The quilting design shows up really well in this shot. I used a very simple, open and flowing star in star pantograph. I didn't want any competition between the quilting and the piecing.
And lastly, a close up of one of the corners, showing my favourite diagonally striped faux piped totally machine sewn binding. I'm running low on those diagonal stripes. It might be getting to be time to do some shopping for some more.
I am linking up this celebration of a finish to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it Friday
