Blue and orange friendship star cot quilt - finished!

Remember this cot quilt I made out of home made 2.5" strips from my stash?
 Well I finally got it quilted.  I used a variegated thread in blue/yellow and stippled it all over. I find stippling is the easiest free motion quilting pattern for me.  I have practised other patterns, but keep coming back to stipple because it generally melts into the background so you can focus on the colours and pattern.
I found a nice blue in my stash to bind it in.  I am all out of orange.  Pity it is definitely one of my new favourite colours!
The best bit is the snuggly flannel backing I found in my stash with diggers on it, and the colours even match! 
 Happy quilting Sue.

  1. Perfect backing fabric, Sue! And I love orange, too. : )
    A really great finish. I, too, like the way stippling gives texture without calling attention to itself. Many times I think that is all a quilt needs.

  4. Lovely finish Sue. I am quite partial to a little bit of orange too. Would never have thought it possible years ago.
