I love making these little 4 patch posey blocks....i think this was the perfect fabric for that. i pieced all the blocks in 5 days.....back in March, 2015. It's been sitting and waiting for me.

It finally came out of the closet....the to-be-quilted closet. haha    it is 45x63"


I used several different colors for the quilting....but not sure how well that shows in the photos

If you squint you can see the star...quilted in red...but still hard to see on purple.

But you can see the quilting on the back. I was going for a fireworks display.


All quilting was done with the Quiltzoid boards

I used several designs

This is the true color of the back....a blue and green stripe....and it is flannel.

I used several threads. for the top, Glide in key lime, bright red (for the star only), jade, turquoise, colbalt, and orchid. i changed colors frequently. The thread for the bobbin is a variegated red, white and blue. 


I quilted the stars in red but it didn't stand out as much as i thought it would. i guess red on purple is not distinctive. sigh!

There are several ovals

Lots of circles

Wavy lines coming out of the star....and a couple other places

And the squished square several times, too.

Some designs are quilted over other designs....some places there is no quilting between designs. 

This was a fun experiment. While I was trying to figure out how to quilt it differently, the idea popped into my head one morning when i woke up. And since i wanted it to look like fireworks, i used a variegated red, white and blue thread in the bobbin.

So, it's full name is Twilight....on the Fourth of July. hahaha
