Twinkle, twinkle



Here's a little quilt some friends and I put together. Its recipient loves to take nighttime walks and so we chose a theme of "Nighttime Creatures". We approached it in the way we had the others. Everyone submitted a block and the scraps of the fabrics they used. I assembled the quilt, using the scraps in the borders, and quilted it.


The inner border has the words to "Twinkle, twinkle little star" quilted in it. The outer borders are quilted in stars and leaves.






A few of the blocks:





We've tested it. It has baby pleasing powers.

Your quilting mojo is 100% intact and fully functional. I can't get over all the texture you added to the designs (which were already pretty fantastic) with the FMQ. Wonderful!
