Break Over!!

My unscheduled break is over. I've pieced extra fabric to the back, reloaded the quilt (thank goodness for zippers and staples) and finished it and all the stars.  I think it turned out pretty nice...

Kind of hard to see (if you click on the picture to make it bigger, it helps), but I did stars and loops in the border, stars and loops in the outer border and ribbon candy with stars in the sashing.  Everywhere you see a dark blue square, you'll also find a star...along with the stars on the wings of the plane.  I'm feeling a bit starstruck *wink*

A couple of close-ups will show you even more stars...or at least I thought it would...they're in the dark blue squares.

This one shows the planes.  Marlene initially wanted me to quilt propellors with dark blue/black thread, but I suggested she either leave them as they were and/or emboider the propellors.  I just didn't think quilted ones would show up as well as embroidered.  When I delivered the quilt, she wasn't sure what she was going to do.  Please note:  two stars per plane in the wings!!! 

I like how it turned out when it was finished and luckily, Marlene did too!
