Mrs.Starlight - A Queen Quilt for My Living Room Wall

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


I am updating my living room decorations.  Here is a peek at the corner of the quilt that will hang on the HUGE wall.  It is so big that nothing could fill it other than a QUILT, of course!  {Although DH says that a moose head would look really nice there!}  
This quilt was actually begun in the spring of this year, but was set aside because it was too wintry to be working on in the spring and summer!  It will be perfect for winter decorations in the living room.  I am also making quilted valances for the six windows and at least one table topper.  {And that black seam that looks crooked below is hiding its straightness behind a wrinkle.}
Mrs.Starlight
Mrs.Starlight is on the living room floor, layered with backing and batting, heading out to Mrs.Singer's rails for her time of glory there.  She was put on the quilt rails on Friday, and Saturday I began quilting her when a belt on Mrs.Singer broke.  No worries.  They are easy to replace ... if you have a spare one, which I don't! It is a good thing I am not planning on entering this quilt { or any quilt } into the Blogger's Quilt Festival happening right now!  I would be freaking out!
Mrs.Starlight is made from the Artful Home collection by Heather Mulder Peterson for Henry Glass Fabrics in the Starlit Evening pattern, also by HMP for Anka's Treasures.  The pattern can be found in her book, Living Large 2.

It will look great on your wall, much nicer than a moose head!
If you are wanting to add a piece to the quilt festival, you can add an older piece. The one I entered this time is three years old. I have started four quilts since May's festival but none are completed yet. I checked with Amy and she said an older quilt is fine.
