twinkle, twinkle little star II

here's a picture of another twinkle, twinkle little star quilt which I completed yesterday. I played around with the sizing of the blocks (increased each star by a third from the last star quilt I made) so I would have a quilt that was a larger. border hand stitched with the lyrics to twinkle, twinkle little star along 3 borders and the baby's name and date of birth along the fourth border.

each star block is a 9-inch block. overall size is approximately 52 x 52. top composed of batik fabrics. all materials 100%. center of quilt hand-tied.

above detail of quilt showing a bit of the back- back is blank & white and a red frame. there is a border past the red of black and white checkerboard fabric (not shown) .

although the pattern is the same, the color, scrappy-ness, and size of the blocks convey a totally different feel for me. I think I prefer the scrappier and smaller stars. what do you think?

Lovely fabric! And I like the way that you tied the quilt. A really great example of what can be done with a traditional quilt block.

Hi ! Kimy !
I learned that song when I was 11 years old, at school. I was just beginning speaking English... I ever remember it

Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are...

That's so nice all what you sew. I have a friend who likes to do such beautiful master pieces. I have two cushions she offered to me.
And she told me how to make a bag. I'll try once...
Maybe ?
