RSC15 Sampler - a Fine Finish

This was a sampler project initiated by Angela of SoScrappy.  It is the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2015 Sampler.  Everything except background is from the scrap bins.  She provided instructions for all the sampler blocks and the main Star block    HERE .

The project is made from 25 star sampler blocks  and 24  connector blocks.  I wanted a nice flow to finish  the design  edge,  so I imported the basic photo into EQ, then played around a bit..... okay, a lot.  I was so happy with the border finish and so inspired to get the quilt together.

These are 12" blocks.  This quilt finishes at 108" x 108".  I work on a DSM in a somewhat small space, and so, sadly, I took the easy road in quilting it.  It has Hobbs 80/20 batting and legacy muslin on the back.  A quilt this large is a huge stretch for me.  I persevered and am so happy it is a finish.
