Planetarium – finished!

November 27, 2012

Well if you can believe it, I actually finished another quilt in my Practical Guide to Patchwork Project! The Planetarium quilt:


Most of the fabrics I used was Indie by Art Gallery. I paired it with solids that I had in my stash. . .yes, I have tons of solids in my stash. For the sashing I used Champagne from Kona solids by Robert Kaufman.


I don’t know what crawled up my butt – but I’m trying to use less and less white for sashing . . . .

The back I used the rest of the Champagne and the Geisha Bliss print from the Indie line.


The quilting was done my the wonderful Mrs. Kayli of Quilt Finishing.



Now if you go to our local Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild – you’ll already know who this quilt was for. I made this quilt for my close friend, Sarah. She loves fall and she always, always, always is making quilts for other people. So back in August my plans were to make her a fall quilt to give it to her in October. . well push that deadline back a month and I surprised her at our meeting with it. If you asked, what her reaction was on her face. . priceless! Oh wait! I had Marci record it too so you can see for yourself!!!
