Star Quilt

Remember those star blocks I was making? Well, here's my completed quilt top. I had some trouble with the star points and I ended up making three of the blocks again, but I'm happy with them now. It'll be a long time before I applique any more stars;)
It was only when I was putting the borders on that I realised I hadn't given a thought to the backing, so I ordered that and I'm now waiting for it to arrive.
Love those reds and warm pinks!
I'm not sure how I'm going to quilt it yet, still thinking about that. It's a nice size for machine quilting, not too big. I think it might be an opportunity for some fancy quilting.
Oh yes, and I got that blanket finished at last:

I like the colours and it's soft and cosy. What more could you want from a blanket?
