It was that time of year - mid-April to mid-June. Time again for a quilt-along at Sandra's place: mmmquilts! For me, it's a "don't miss it" opportunity. 2022 is my fourth year to participate and I've enjoyed it just as much this year as in the previous three.
I really thought Sandra's 2022 design, PopStar, would be fun in a two color combo, so it all began in April with a fabric purchase - two blues and a background white-on-white.
Weekly steps, beginning with the smallest units, helped the construction of the quilt top go so smoothly.
Once I found a backing, and got the quilt layers basted together, the quilting went really quickly. Over this last weekend, I attached the binding, and voila!
About 40.5 x 40.5
Quilting is straight lines in a diagonal grid every 2 7/8 inches.
Binding is the same dark blue as the main star.
The backing is a light blue with white stars sprinkled throughout.

Thank you, Sandra, for another fun QAL, and with wonderful results! Here's my collection!

Looks great and congrats on the finish!
your blue finishes all look really great
Such a pretty quilt! I enjoyed reading your process and a peek at all your finishes. Sandra should give you an A+ !
What kind of pen d0 you use for your labels, and does laundering affect the ink?
Congrats on the wonderful finish! I really like this design! I, too, am curious about what kind of ink you use for your quilt labels!
that turned out great!! your colors are PERFECT!
That looks right at home on your blue couch, it turned out spectacular! That was fun to see your other ones from Sandra's QAL.
Great choice to use 2 different blues. Looks great and the best part? It's 100% finished! Yay!
Very nice fabric selection in ALL of your QAL quilts. I think the quilting you did on PopStar in Blue is perfect for it.
Love yours in the blues against white background. Your collage is great & something I have no idea how to do. I love doing Sandra's QALs, but have only done the last 3. Take care & hugs.
Oooh, great fabric choices. It gives the design a snowflake feeling!
Congrats on the finish and what a great set of 4 quilts you have created over the years.
A great finish... and so quick!
Another successful project completion! It is perfect in the blues, great choice.
Pop Star looks terrific! It's bigger than I thought. Pretty.
Beautiful Diann!! The blue and white is so pretty - kind of wintry.
Wow Diann it turned out just wonderfully! Great backing too! I love the photo of it on your couch, and I love the collage of the four quilts you have made. Everyone of them is so pretty with great fabric choices. Thank you so much for quilting along again with me!
The two-colour idea was a great one - an inspired vision! Well done on such a lovely finish.
