2016 Finish-Along ~ 2nd Third Quarter Finish ~ Day Break

Happy to say I have another finish for this quarter!  It's a quilt I started a little over a year ago, so I'm really happy to have it done.  :)

The pattern is Day Break by Jay Bird Quilts.  I used the Simply Colorful collection by V & Co with Architextures in black by Carolyn Friedlander as the background.  

I love the contrast between the background and the sunny colors of the Simply Colorful line!   I had a hard time deciding on a binding, but I thought the Yellow Geometric Frames set it off nicely.  Backing is Orange Leaves with a star block split in two.

Binding in progress

The quilting on this one is simple with lines on the sashing surrounding the stars and inside the stars.  If I ever get decent at FMQ, I may go back and add some accent stitching to the stars.  :)  (But don't hold your breath!)  The quilting is hard to see because of the dark fabric, but it shows up a little in this sunny pic.

So this makes finish # 2 for the Third Quarter!
