Milky Way Quilt

During the time that I have been blogging and quilting, I have been apart of a LQS (Local Quilt Shop) monthly sampler. They call it Saturday Sampler, LOL!! I have only ever finished one of their quilts, that is until this quilt! I had so much fun with the colors that I knew I would finish it. Here are a few of the finished blocks.

As I am working on a quilt, I like to draw a sketch to see what I need to do finish it. I thought I would add my sketch here. Sorry about the shadow, I only ever meant for me to see it, HA HA!!

Now my quilt is a top. I need to finish it and quilt it. I think because this quilt is so busy, I need to just do an all over stipple. I hope to be back soon with it all quilted up.

I am also joining in with Red Letter Quilts' link-up party, OMG, One Monthly Goal. I am listing this quilt as my goal. I would like to have it quilted by the end of August. I don't think that will be too hard for me to do. I can't wait to see it finished. I hope that I have not set myself up for failure. But I won't know until I try! I hope everybody has a good evening.



  1. Wow, Shannon, that is a gorgeous quilt! I love the bright colors, and the black is the perfect background to set those off. Whoop whoop for a luscious finish!

  2. The colors are beautiful, it would be hard to pick a favorite! I love the sashing you planned for this too, it really unites them well. Good Luck with your goal!

  3. Looks great! I love what you did with the sashing and borders to pull it all together. I'm in an all over stippling mode right now too. Congrats on finishing a beautiful quilt top!

  4. Great quilt! The wonderful colors just pop on the black.

  5. The print you've used in the sashing and borders highlights the bright colors in the blocks so well!
