Finally finished this quilt, and I just love how super soft the shot cotton and other fabrics are now that they've been washed. I played up the half to the whole in my quilting to make a connection with the half squares that make the points of the stars. I quilted each little square in the border in half making a zig zag around the quilt that works really well so I'm glad I didn't quilt x's in each block to match the inside of the stars. I love how varying the placement of the dark and light values makes some of the stars feel like they ought to be bouncing around and making noises like a pinball machine.
