My First Completely Finished Quilt of 2011

My first completely finished quilt (quilted, bound, and labeled) of 2011 is quilt I made for the school auction.  It finished at 56" by 71" and I'm calling it Shining Star.

You may be wondering about the name, saying to yourself, "Where are the stars?"

Well, the stars are in the quilting.  My longarm quilter, Karen Thompson, used gold thread in a pantograph design of meandering stars. 

The background fabric has a slightly mottled look, like denim.  I think it makes a nice throw or lap quilt, perfect for a dorm room.  We'll see what others think when it gets auctioned on April 30.
