Finished quilt!!!! "Starstruck" #projectquilting

This is my one week odyssey quilt!!! My very handsome husband (mr gorgeous) had been hinting ever so subtly (not really) about having a quilt of his own to fit our very large king sized bed. So I decided this week, no matter what the challenge, I'd make one for him!! I used a block pattern of a star block with a cross in the middle of it...I simplified it so that I would have a chance of finishing!! The middle piece of fabric is 18.25". The final block is 30". I have been hoarding these fabrics for a while!! So I was super excited to actually have enough to finish!!! It took up my entire dining room floor when pin basting!!!eeeeek! I free motion quilted it by quarters on my Janome 6600 in about 6 hours with breaks!! (Gourmet dinner, anyone???) and I bound most of it on my day trip to QuiltCon in Austin (6hours total!!) for my appliqué part, I added a little fabric sheep and needle turned it and added my signature embroidery to my darling husband!! "D+S I love EWE!" This quilt is 90x120" and was made in Texas!!!
