Seeing Stars - QAL

Even with all the projects I have going on around here, I'm delighted to say I have been keeping up with each week's assignment for the Star Light Star Bright Quilt Along at Happy Quilting.  This week was the simple task of assembling up our star centers.  As I am only making 4 giant stars, in no time at all, I was finished.

 At this stage, I can really see this quilt starting to come together.  I love the bold colors and the simplicity of only using these four prints throughout the quilt.

Once I start a quilt, I keep an eye out for a good deal on the backing fabric.  I was ecstatic that I was able to pick up the red and green circle fabric from Fort Worth Fabrics.  Not only was it on sale but they were temporarily discounting their sale items by an additional 20%. WooHoo!  To celebrate, I might have even threw a few other items in my shopping cart.

Want to see what fabrics other are using for this Quilt-A-Long?  You can check out everyone's links here.
I will be sharing this Anything Goes Mondays at Stitch by Stitch, Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times and Linky Tuesday at Freemotion by the River.
