Queen Stained Glass Star Quilt

Yea!!!!!!!!!!
Daughter’s quilt is finished and we delivered it today!  It turned out so pretty, and she loves it!

Several weeks ago I talked about the pillow cases I made for her, a matched set to go with the new bedspread.  In addition to the two pillowcases shown below, I made two others in reverse colors (pink with black top).

The quilt is made up of 16 squares with a pink background.  Each square uses a different blue star metallic fabric as an accent.   The corners are accented with a lighter pink star.

The stained glass effect occurs by using black strips between each piece of fabric, representing the lead came used in real stained glass pieces.

This quilt took about two months to complete.  It was originally going to be a lap quilt, but grew over time into an over-size queen quilt.

I was originally going to tie the quilt at each corner to secure the layers, but decided instead to have it machine stitched in a meandering stipple design.  It looks so pretty with the hot pink thread meandering over the quilt.  It looks like a very large squiggle 🙂

Overall, the quilt fits the queen size bed beautifully, and the four matching pillowcases (two pink / black, and two black / pink) absolutely finish it off perfectly.
