Finish It Up Friday ~ Shenandoah Stars

I started this quilt way back in November of 2014! Gosh, it’s good to finally be done with it!

I quilted it with a panto called Airborne from Urban Elementz.

The stars are 8 inch blocks. The fabrics are from a Nancy Gere line called Shenandoah.

I’ve been trying to find new places to take pictures of finished quilts. These next few pics were taken after washing.

I’m always fascinated by the way washing changes the texture.

Have a wonderful weekend!
