Summer Star Quilt top finished!

My Summer Star Quilt top is finally finished! I plan to hand-quilt it, once I get the hand-quilting of the huge Pinwheel Quilt done... might be a while still :) 
Now I can start thinking of a new project... Perhaps I should finish piecing the Chintz Quilt, I was getting bored with following instructions and sewing snowball patches, I think that should try and modify it somewhat to make it more original and creative.

Mom's Delft Snowball quilt top finished

My mom just finished piecing her "Delft Snowball" quilt, inspired by Kaffe Fassett's Wedding Snowball quilt pattern found in his wonderful book "Museum Quilts". Here are some more shots of the lovely quilt.

Summer Star Quilt border

I've resumed my quilting, now that all the wedding excitement and trip to Italy is over. I've added a plain strip of Kaffe's Gold Roman Glass fabric around the quilt and started with the randomly pieced border. Thanks for all the helpful suggestions which helped me to improve the border. Its looking much better!
