This is my entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival!
This was one of those quilts that was supposed to be quick, simple, easy...and then turned into a beast of a quilt that wasn't quick, simple, or easy. I struggled through making it, deciding on colors, size, quilting. Mostly on the quilting! But in the end it was worth it, and I'm so glad I spent all that extra time and energy on it!
The stars were made following Better Off Thread's tutorial. I used two layers of batting to add extra texture.

I made it to be a double sided quilt, but generally I consider this the back:
