Blogger's Quilt Festival - Night Sky Mini Quilt

My second entry in the Bloggers Quilt Festival is my Night Sky mini quilt. I measures 20" square, so I'm entering it into the mini quilts category.


I finished this one a couple of weeks ago as part of the Handmade Birthday swap I'm participating in for the next twelve months. It was a fast and fun mini quilt to put together, and it was such an enjoyable quilt to quilt :o)

I used the brilliant Night Sky pattern by Jaybird Quilts - and have since made a second mini quilt and have started a full sized quilt. They are addictive blocks to make!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I hope you enjoy the rest of the festival :o)
