When we got this submission from Melanie, it just really popped out at me. I thought it would be a fun Friday feature, just to make us happy and prep us all for the weekend! I have been wanting to make a star quilt forever! I love the colors, and prints, and white backing. Just really pretty! See Melanie's pretty flower tutorials here, and some fun quilt finishes here.

Meandering Machine Quilting
My label. My Pigma Micron pen bled slightly and faded a little, so I'll go over it again. Any other ideas for labeling quilts?
So there it is! What do you think? Feels so good to be done with a quilt and to make something special for my little girl to grow up with and keep forever. Maybe my granddaughter will have it one day!
