Autumn Stars at Night.... all quilted!

quilted Hunk #2's birthday quilt!  Isn't it beautiful!

The backing is a 100% cotton Ralph Lauren denim sheet.  I am making the binding out of the remaining fabric!

ps... Kristina took the pix too!

The original pattern was Smokey Mountain Stars by Bonnie Hunter of http://www.quiltville.com/
She had posted several photos of this pattern people had made, and someone adapted it into this pattern (the border & retangles).  I figured out her pattern from the photo and made it. However, the name and photo are no longer on the website, at least as far as I can see.  I wanted to give her and Bonnie Hunter the appropriate credit.

And to all those who comforted me as I cried over this .... thank you!

I was so excited when I saw that picture of the quilt adaptation. I had been collecting fall batiks and thought it'd be the perfect quilt to use them in!  I was getting the fabrics prepped when Hunk #2 walked in the room (Summer 2010) and said, Mom... can you make me a quilt? I want stars on it. And in fall colors? Huh, Mom? Can you?
'Really?' was my thought.  I nodded my head and said, 'well, maybe someday.'
