Night Sky Quilt Top

I finished my Night Sky quilt top (pattern by Camille Roskelley) yesterday by 4pm... I was so anxious to finish it and take some pics when it started raining and it was so dark that I just did not wanna make any effort to take bad pictures. I was also hoping that with hubby at home today he could help me hanging the top but, it did not work well either (not your fault hubby, haha). I definetely need to get a different lens, mine is a 50mm that is awesome for portraits and details, but not for big objets.

After the excuses, here is my top!!! I have to say, I am very proud of this quilt! 



As I told before I used most of the fat quarters that came in these bundles. When I started my top I only could say that I really like the colors and prints in each bundle, but I couldn't picture the whole quilt in those fabrics at all. After each block done I had a mix of feelings about how my top would turn out. I even got upset with some small blocks that I could barely see the stars because my wrong background choices. 


When I was only eight blocks away to finish it I had to make it work with Kona Aqua. I LOVE this color. It just came on handy and I'm sure the aqua gave all the balance between the charcoal and grey. I tried the top on my daughter's twin size bed and it looks lovely... I definetly will share pics on her bed as soon as I get it quilted. BTW, any thoughts on how I should quilt it? (I've something in mind, but I'd Love to get some other opinions!!)


So, do you wanna keep sewing this pattern with me?! Oh, yes, I'm not done! I've another quilt in the row! I'm making it with Miss Kate by Bonnie & Camille. As I told in my previous post I've some awesome prizes (including Aurifil box threads by Camille Roskelley) and I'd love to give it away. I thought January 25th would be a good time for all of us to share our WIPs or completed quilts.
Please share what you've in mind!

Quilt Along update, more blocks and a winner!

I'm so happy to share that I'm almost done with my Night Sky Quilt  top verson 1! I need to make more two of those small blocks and sew the rows.

So, today I decided to show only this big block and the small one hoping that this Friday I'll share my completed quilt top. I just have to figure out how I'm gonna take good pics since it is raining and it seems it's not gonna stop until Saturday (love raining anyway ;-D).


Last week we had some Night Sky WIP linked up on this post. It's always fun to see fabric choices for this quilt pattern. We also had some awesome tips on how to make flying geese from Alyssa (Pile O'Fabric), Jane and Hildy


I was just thinking on extending our quilt along to January hoping that more of you will have enough time to join in and share your WIPs and finished quilts. I also have more prizes to giveaway from my sponsors and it's more exciting when we have a good number of participants linking up their projects. 
BTW, the winner for the last week linking up projects is Sinta from Pink Pincushion
