Hanover Stars

I have finished my version of the Hanover Stars by Red Crinoline Quilt. 

I used several Civil War fabrics. The pattern calls for 70 different fabrics.  

I used a solid Moda Bella sashing and made my corner stones from a very small scale black print.  

I just love how the solid star points just pop in the scrappy civil war print for backgrounds.

I used a tan Civil War Backing  and Tan thread.  I quilted using a damask pattern.  I used a Bamboo/Cotton Blended Batting for the first time.   It was so soft and nice.  I must say I LIKED IT.  

Just another close up of the star blocks.

Thanks for letting me share.
