Starry Sky

I started sewing this quiltie at the October quilt retreat.  I made it from a kit that I bought at Sew Many Treasures.  It was fun to sew and contained many different components to make it a great sample of different techniques.  
The first components were the snowflakes, or the three large pinwheels made from half square triangles.

The next components were the appliqued snowman and three large stars in the sky.  I loved that the snowman has fuzzy flannel mittens!

Next the boarder is a checker board with blue square cornerstones.  

For the quilting I did a continuous curve flower patterns on each of the three large snowflakes.


In the blue cornerstones I tried a free motion flower pattern and I think it is my overall favorite part of this quilt!  I’m certain I will use this flower pattern again because it was fun and easy to sew.

In the boarder and in the rest of the night sky I did medium sized stippling.

The last finishing touches of this quiltie are the buttons that I added as embellishments.  I found these lovely snowflake buttons and I got some cute star buttons from my mom. 
 I added a sprig of holly button for the knot of the scarf as well as several brown buttons from my stash for the mittens and the heart.
  

I made this Starry Night quiltie for my very good friend Farrah.  She loves winter, it is her favorite season by far.  Actually she really only like winter when there is lots of snow!  So I thought she would enjoy this snowman wall hanging.  I gave her the quilt on Sunday and she loved it!
