Shoot for the Stars {a finished quilt!}

Remember the sneak peek of an arrow I gave you a couple of weeks ago?  Well, here is my finished mini quilt, Shoot for the Stars.

Shoot for the Stars

I used my friend, Sarah‘s Love Struck Arrow pattern and pieced them together with a “sashing” in between.  Then I embroidered Shoot for the Stars in a stitch I found here called the Hungarian Braided Chain Stitch.  My stitches aren’t nearly as awesome as hers, but they’ll do.  I also love the variegated embroidery floss.  It was a perfect match for the fletchers on the arrows.

And speaking of perfect match, I don’t think there could possibly be a better binding for this quilt. 🙂

Here’s a little closer look at the embroidery.

And here is the quilt hanging in my son’s newly re-decorated room. I can’t wait to show you his new bed quilt, but that will have to wait a little bit longer.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. “Shoot for the Stars” looks great on your blog. I am happy that I got to see it Sunday when you were completing the binding.
    I know you will be surprised to know that I have completed all four of the paper piecing pots and succulent patterns you gave us at Sunday’s workshop. Thanks for all your patience and supporting words. I really like paper piecing.

  2. This really turned out cute. Everything came together perfectly (fabrics, words, design, colors). Can’t wait to see it in person.
