Blue Star Struck quilt is completed!

I asked my hubby to be the clothesline so show off my DONE Blue Star Struck. I debated on that orange slim border but really feel it frames the blocks well.
This quilt is Aleighsha's birthday quilt. Her BD is in November. I am way ahead for a change!
This is the quilt after block assembly but before the borders were added.

And here is the quilt being quilted. I went around each light and dark star. It was lots and lots of turning but the results were great!

I love that little orange border. I can only thank Bonnie Hunter for teaching me about using a contrast color to make the quilt body POP!

I love this quilt. The fabrics are perfect. You are so right about the orange border too. Really frames it. And isn't it nice to be ahead of the game!
