Pixel Star in a Pixel Heart Quilt in Pink and Aqua

I had this quilt top ready to piece together on April 10th (I know because I posted the layout on Instagram). Finally three months later I have the quilt finished! :D I got busy with custom orders which I am certainly not complaining about. Nevertheless, I am thrilled to have my quilt finished.

This is the Pixel Star in a Pixel Heart quilt version 2 from my pattern. 


(The pattern has two versions of the quilt.)

This pattern can be found at Daydreams of Quilts, on Etsy and on Craftsy.


Pixel Star in a Pixel Heart Quilt designed, pieced and quilted by Anita LaHay of Daydreams of Quilts.
 This quilt is made entirely of Bonnie and Camille Fabrics. There are fabrics from about six of their lines in here.


The backing is the strawberry print from the "Hello Darling" line.


 I even used some of my long treasured "Marmalade" fabrics in the heart and the star. The star is quilted with big loopy springs. The heart is stippled and the background is what I call "balls on strings".


A closer look at the star.



Here's an out take shot (too much mottled light) with my Border Collie mix puppy. He's about 5 months old and we've had him for a month. He is very high energy. I wish I had his level of energy! :)

Thank you for stopping by to see my quilt today.
