Asterisk Quilt Top Done!

I think I say this with each new quilt, but I do think this is my favorite so far.  Made as part of the ORBC Quilt Along, this is a pattern from Karen Griska.  I have a Plan, not yet executed, for the back but I was so excited I had to share the top:






















It's bold and bright and I love it.  Thanks to Jackie for the Kona card, it's always nice to have the Right Tool for the Job!  I think I ordered 16 different solids for this quilt based on the card and the handy-dandy registration dots on the selvage of the gridded fabric.

This is also one of those projects where the unexpected comes into play in a big way.  I would never have bought this yardage of Blank fabric on eBay ordinarily, but when I spotted it I knew it would be perfect for this pattern.
  
















Will post again when it's completed - I have two other projects with deadlines looming but as I said earlier I do have a Plan for the back, and a tentative plan for the quilting.

  3. I love your quilt! It got an "Oh, wow" from my daughter and husband(!) when they saw it on Flickr. (I'm jealous and want to re-create your quilt as a result.)
