Craftsy 2012 BOM Quilt Top finished!

I have signed up for Leah Day's FMQ class on Craftsy, which shows specifically how she quilted this.  Can't wait to start!   But want to make husband's wool shirt first.

Pillow shams

Shams on quilt

50 Fabulous Stars Pillow Shams

I made two identical pillow shams to go with my quilt.  Here is a photo of the back of the quilting before I added the back of the sham.

I have added a 6" border in QAYG.   The quilting is a sampler, with the design changing every 12" or so.  I will post some close ups of that.
