While the SIT was napping there was time to finally get photos of my first finish for 2019.
Inverted Star (Second Star to the Right)

Inverted Star (aka Second Star to the Right) is now finished! I'm really happy with how this quilt turned out. The Inverted Star blocks were my 2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge Project. The Sawtooth Stars were stitched as part of my 2017 RSC projects. So it took a while to get this one done, but the extra effort was definitely worth it.
Trudy did a wonderful job with the quilting. I've haven't washed this one yet, but it's going to have lots of wonderful texture once it's out of the dryer. Here's how it looks from the back.
The backing is an older Connecting Threads line that I ordered when it was on sale. It's as bright as the front is.
The borders were quilted with simple loops. I didn't have enough of the white used for the Inverted Star blocks to make the borders so I had to use another white from the stash. They match well enough that you have to look hard even when you are up close to notice that the quilt uses two different tone on tone whites.
The label has been posted on the blog before, but just to wrap it all up, here's the rough copy. The SIT wrote a very nice note for her writing buddy. The quilt was intended as as college graduation present, but the SIT decided to wait till Christmas to gift this one. There's a quilt in progress for the other writing buddy in her group. That quilt is on the list to finish before the end of the year, so she'll be able to gift both quilts at the same time.
So one finish in the books and a second one almost finished. Not a bad start to 2019. Linking up with Monday Making, Monday Design Wall, and Main Crush Monday. I'll also be linking up with the First Quarter 2019 Finish Along once that is posted.
