Star Light, Star Bright. First Star I See Tonight. I Wish I May, I Wish I Might...

...Have the Wish I Wish Tonight. 

My wish is to get this quilted and bound in October. 
It just this week became a flimsy.  Quilt was inspired by a free quilt pattern called Star Bright from Swim, Bike, Quilt.   I cut my squares 6.5 inches for a quilt that measures 60x78.  I'm making it for Quilts of Valor. 

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? And check out what everyone else is whooping it up about over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.    (I'm also whooping it up because my son's girlfriend (is someone still called a girlfriend at age 40) is finally, after about five weeks, home from the hospital. She was in ICU for three and a half weeks and in rehab until discharge yesterday. )
Oh, and since I finished this flimsy up today I'm also linking up to Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.

The big splash of colour against the black background is unexpected and looks great.

Glad to hear is all well with your family.

Oh, Kathy, that's so pretty! I need a quilt for an 8 year old boy, and I had completely forgotten this pattern - it would be perfect. Thanks for the reminer!

Whoop whoop!!
