A "Secret" birthday quilt.

I really love the Giant Vintage Star quilt pattern by Jeni at In Color Order. I have already made a couple of quilts using his pattern (here and here) , and decided to make another one for our daughters 18th birthday.
I had a few half yard pieces of Sandi Henderson's beautiful Secret Garden fabrics in colours that I knew Gem would like and knew that this design would show the large scale fabrics well.
After marking lines about one inch apart with my hera marker, I quilted it with some straight line quilting.
 The quilt is backed in a hot pink fabric that matches the fuschia colours in the Secret garden fabrics perfectly.
 This quilt finishes at 60 inches square and is bound  with a lovely blue which also matches the blue in the fabrics.
