Beachfront Cottage quilt top

Here is the finished Beachfront Cottage quilt top! One of the really nice *features* of this quilt, is that the star points on the red stars are not meant to line up with the points on the blue stars. This hides those not-absolutely-perfect points, when they kind of float like this! :o) This quilt is large -- it is laid out on our queen size bed, so that gives you an idea of the size -- it is 93 x 105! Sharon is ordering a few different quilting stencils for me, and once I receive them, I will start hand-quilting it... A labor of love, as she is a dear friend. :o)
Hope everyone is having a nice weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!

It's beautiful, Angela! And what better time than winter to curl up and hand quilt? I'm curious why it's called, "Beachfront Cottages."

Love the new look on the blog too. Valentines are so fun!
