Aidan's Twinkle stars quilt......

is finally all quilted! I had a kid free day Saturday and after taking a nice walk in the sunshine I got to work quilting his quilt. Lots of thread breaks that I will need to clean up but it is all machine quilted. I had made a white binding.... but it decided it needed a scrappy blue one instead. The binding is all sewn down just waiting for the hand turning. I am thinking the white stars need some hand quilting 1/4 inch from the inside of each of them so that will also get worked on this week. He chose the backing fabric - patriotic flags! It seems they say the pledge of allegiance at school every day so he wanted some flags on his quilt.

Great idea to quilt inside the stars to pop them out.
Enjoy your stitching and thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!
