    The main fabric is calico (or do you call it muslin in the States?) and I've backed it with cosy flannelette . It is going to be a Christmas present but as I don't know who for yet, it is still to be labelled. My favourite part of the whole process is the FMQ and I'm only sorry that the more I do on a quilt the stiffer it gets. I have to really reign myself in when doing them for children.

    You did a beautiful job. Your quilt is gorgeous and whoever you give it to will be one lucky, happy person. What fabric did you use for your stars and block borders? Just lovely.

    Such a beautiful quilt! I love the pattern, and your FMQ is outstanding. Yes, they do stiffen up the more we quilt them. I, too, have that problem.
    When life throws you scraps, make a quilt!

    Lovely and what a beautiful job on the FMQ!! I don't do that at all, but tend to put too many lines in my quilts as well but I love how they feel afterwards :-) Yes, it looks like what you call Calico is the plain white type muslin used here in the states. Makes great backgrounds and backings. Really love your quilting work.

    Your quilt is just too beautiful. I took a FMQ quilt class this spring and have really not gotten around to using what I learned. Seeing how beautiful you have made your quilt (both pattern & FMQing) I am inspired to try my hand at it. How long did it take you and how long have you been doing this?

    I had been looking for a tartan type cotton fabric without any joy then I saw a tartan cotton dress in a charity shop for £2.50 and that I used for most of the stars, the rest were from my stash. The pattern I took from a Singer book bought in 1993 (only recently started quilting again after 25 years and FMQ is a recent addiction).
