Summer Sorbet

I finished my first star quilt - I'm calling it Summer Sorbet, one of the many great suggestions I received from you all. I love how soft the colors and fabrics feel. It is 36 x 48.
Part of what has kept me away from my blog was finding the perfect binding and backing to finish off this lovely, girly quilt. I found this stripe from Michael Miller, and I can't believe how exactly it matches the colors in the front of the quilt!

I used the same allover quilting I used with my nephew's quilt, and I like how it sort of disappears to allow the fabrics to shine.
Sandi Henderson's Meadowsweet is so lovely, I just used two prints from the line on the back of the quilt. So bold and fresh!
Another project has been keeping me busy, and I'll be able to share it with you on Friday!
