Oh the joy of another finish and I just love how it turned out and it is my entry for  Bloggers Quilt Festival, I have always loved reading all about the quilts and  this year decided to join  the fun for the first time.

"Straight on 'til Morning"

“Straight on ’til Morning”

Larry decided  on the name “Straight on ’til Morning” from the following quote:

 “Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning. ”

? J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

All the starts are paper pieced which I blogged about here last February and most come from Faith at Fresh Lemon Quilts and also a few from Quilterscasche.com.

Faiths instructions and patterns are just wonderful and if you want to try paper piecing for the first time, I would check her blog out.

I  didn’t have a plan  when I started out and it kind of evolved as I went along and really liked how making the blocks bigger with the solid painter canvas made the stars just pop. I am in love with Painter canvas from Laura Gunn with Michael Miller which I used as the background also and combined with the her Cosmos line was wonderful to work with.  I just got to see her new Edges collection and I see lots of this in my stash very soon!

For the quilting design I used Spiral Star by Marjorie Busby which provides great texture. I used two layers of batting warm and natural and a thin poly that was out of its bag so not sure what it was!  Thread was Bottom line in the bobbin and Sew Fine on top in white.

Here are some more detailed pictures:
