Milky Way Quilt - Finished!

It feels so good to have a finished project!!!!  This is the largest quilt I have done to date.  I made it for a dear friends husband.  Her husband has always wanted a quilt but only a quilt made by a grandma with love.  I was touched when she told me his desire for a handmade quilt and honored to have been asked to make one.

The background fabric is aged muslim; most of the star blocks are civil war reproductions.  

Trust everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Your quilt is gorgeous. Something so appealing about star quilts.

What a lovely quilt and a lovely story behind its inception. The fabrics/colours are just perfect.
