Charm star: finished!

A little while ago, I posted a picture of the Charm Star quilt top I’d made my mum for mother’s day.  Here is the final result.photo4

On the advice of a creatively brave friend of mine, I quilted it in navy blue thread rather than white (my usual, very safe choice).  I’m really happy with the way that the dark thread shows off the quilting.  It meant I had to be sure to do a perfect job!

I bound it in an aqua polka-dot fabric from the April Showers range.  It links nicely to the fabrics in the star, and ties it all together.

Mum loves it.  I think my grandmother wants to pinch it!  I’ll just have to make her a different one.
