The Stargate--Finished!!

Don't forget to check out my guest post over at Lily's Quilts about the creation of this quilt.

I call it the Stargate quilt because the center Dresden made me think of that movie, even though I haven't seen in years.

I made the pieced Dresden following along with Lynne's Quilt Along over at Lily's Quilts.  The HST design is inspired from this quilt by Red Pepper Quilts.

The New Wave pattern from Oh Fransson inspired the quilt back.








I machine quilted it using my standard loopy quilting style, except the Dresden center which is quilted with pebble quilting.  The fabrics are a scrappy assortment, all from my stash.  The grey is Kona Coal, and the white is Kona White.  The binding is from the Sherbet Pips line.  The finished size is approximately 60"x70".


The color inspiration for this quilt came from this photo from Design Seeds.
