Sunshine On A Cloudy Day

It has been snowy and cloudy the last two days, while I have quilted and bond this lap size quilt.  The bright colors have been a ray of sunshine through this gloom.  So I think it only fitting I name it Sunshine On A Cloudy day.
I quilted the outlined of the star and then did pebble quilting around the background to make the star stand out more. I stitched in the ditch around the star block and then using 1" tape I stitched inside the frame a couple of time.  Finally, I stitched in the ditch and 1" from each seam rays coming out from the star.  Bond it all in navy and this ray of sunshine is complete.

  11. I have not really cared much for solid gray in quilts but I love this quilt. The gray makes all the bright colors more vibrant in a way that white or nearly white doesn't and I like the contrast between the gray and brights more than I would black. I am going to give gray more consideration from now on.
