seeing stars sew-a-long, quilt completed

Tricia Cribbs at Turning Twenty had a sew-a-long last year with a design by Sue Carter, Seeing Stars. 12 block patterns, each made in two sizes. The book is now available:

I changed the set a bit and made an additional eight large sized blocks with different star patterns to make my variation work.
78 1/2 by 99 inches

I used several yellow solids for the backgrounds and 30s repros (plus one vintage!) in the blocks, and a great yellow print for the setting pieces.

A cheerful quilt! Thank you, Tricia and Sue!

The back is made in what I call a "storybook" style, with a variety of light prints with figures on them. I will post later on how I put these together.

Love the setting fabric you used. It's great! There aren't enough yellow quilts out there so kudos to you! Great work. I love it. ;^)
