The Notting Hill Asterisk

(Are you ready for TOO many pictures?)

It is finished and on it's way to my customer.

I have to say that I don't want this one to leave my house, EVER!

The quilt pattern is "Modern Asterisk" by Kimberly Bourne (Get links HERE)

The majority of the fabric is from Joel Dewberry, specifically his Notting Hill Collection. (Get links HERE)

The quilting was done by the FABULOUS Stacy Simmons.

Stacy is OVER THE TOP ah-MAZING!!!

The top was all done with foundation piecing.

It was not difficult, but is was VERY time consuming.

I watched 6 episodes of Drop Dead Diva while I removed the paper from just the small asterisks :/

I am TOTALLY in love!

This quilt is for a customer back east.  It is for her sweet daughter.

I am really thinking about making one of these for myself.

...but it isn't likely to happen :(

For the binding & label, I used "Banded Bliss" from Joel Dewberry's Notting Hill Collection

The customer requested minky for the backing.

With all of the color choices available, we went with a soft butter yellow.

The soft yellow is perfect to compliment the crazy colors of the top.

I am going to miss this quilt!!

Quilt stats:
88" x 94"
