Finish It Up Friday ~ Vintage Stars

This came together so quickly! It was the perfect setting for my swap stars.

I changed mine up a bit, using the blue for the setting triangles.

I wish I had quilted the hanging diamonds closer, but I can live with it.

I bought this toile back when we lived in France in the late 1990s.

The rest of these photos show the quilt after washing.

And here it is hanging in my family room. The stars finish at 6 inches and the quilt finished at 50 by 60 inches.

Have a great day!

    Wow it’s fabulous. I saw mine in one picture, the solid bright pink one! That yellow/ blue side triangles is amazing and I do love the hanging diamonds. Don’t see that often enough.

    I so appreciate your posts! I have a project that I am setting basketweave blocks on point with a yellow fabric such as you’ve done. Bordering in blue like you did is truly inspired. I am going to finish off my project with a companion color to the yellow ones. Many thanks! Pinned it.
