Starlight Express Finish

Starlight Express is finished. The stars started out as a jellyroll gifted to me by Nanette. The stars were pieced using the Starlight Express pattern from Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam & Nicky Lintott. The rest of the design came from my imagination.


I pulled fabrics from my stash that were similar to the original fabrics. I did buy the border fabric. Yoder Department Store in Shipshewana still had this original fabric from the line. I also finished up four background fabrics that needed to be used. I didn't intend to make a king sized quilt but that's what happened. The flimsy measures 99" by 111".


I wrote a post in November about piecing the stars and another post when I added the first checkerboard border.


This is a donation to the school auction the Pennsylvania grandchildren attend. It will be hand quilted by someone  else.
