A 'Star Struck' finish

Four -and-a- half years in the making!!!  One of my oldest UFOs... (ONE of a few!....)

Star Struck (71" x 87")
 I am officially a quilter.  One who starts projects with some fastfire inspiration...
July 2, 2009 -- scraps pulled
...only to be stalled with a layout dilemma roadblock (July 9, 2009 post).
In 2010 and 2012, the blocks were pulled out again, and the stack of blocks grew....

And, finally, in January 2014, with the help of some inspiration by Angela (Andee) and Angela (SoScrappy), a top was pieced!!!

A flannel backing and some light Thinsulate batting were used to finish off the quilt.  I'm surprised I had enough flannel to have the backing all the same fabric!  A new pantograph "Fascination" was tried out....
And a UFO is finallllly checked off the list.

Beautiful finish! The longer the quilt has been in the works, the better it feels to cross it off the list. Congratulations!

At least you came out with a beautiful quilt in the end! Inspiration takes time but it sure is worth it!

What a relief! I like the pops of yellow you put in.
