Stars over Fort Sumter

I had been wanting to quilt a quilt with a light background to try some mini stacked peacock feathers (I am sure that is not the official name, but that is what I call them) as a background fill.  And as I was looking for my inspiration for the Green (from the previous post), I saw the Stars over Fort Sumter and it was perfect for what I had in mind. 

Who doesn't love the Dark Chocolate and Pinks.  Using a light cream Moda background really lets the colors pop.
Close up so that you can see the quilting idea that was what started the whole thing.  I love how it gives the quilt a unique texture without taking away from the overall quilt pattern.
I didn't go a very good job timing myself on how long it took to quilt it.  I just kept quilting, and quilting, and quilting.  Good thing that I don't need much sleep.
Thanks again for letting me Share.
