Goal Accomplished

My June UFO goal was to piece a backing for my 21 stars mystery quilt which was pieced in January. I used the quilt top scraps to make these fun friendship variation blocks in Cheryl Arkison's Traditional Variations class.

I started with 6 blocks from the class and bordered them to make them larger. I worked with the amount of blue Darlene Zimmerman fabric I had left, added some gold, and used up as many of the scraps from making the front of the quilt as possible.

I decided to sew the stars together in rows, and add side and top borders. 

Here's the finished backing. It's a little wonky, wrinkly and disjointed, but it will do as a backing!

Hi Kathy,
Good idea to use the leftover fabrics from the front to make the quilt backing. I love the 21 Stars quilt you made in January, and am happy you are finishing it. Good job! Hugs, Judy
