Underwater Missouri Star Quilt

Underwater Missouri Star Quilt

So we have kind of had a crazy week.  If you follow me on Instagram you might have already seen the craziness, but yesterday my daughter's school called to tell me that she had passed out at school and they had called an ambulance.

Then I panicked a little bit.

I rushed over to the school and found my very pale daughter being examined by paramedics.  I followed the ambulance over to the emergency room and after several hours of evaluation and tests, and despite not having any significant symptoms, an x-ray revealed that she has pneumonia.

She is home with me for the rest of the week while the antibiotics do their job, so I enlisted her to take a few quilt photos.  I know these photos aren't the best, just remember that those little feet in the photo belong to a little girl who has pneumonia and whose mom is making her take quilt photos.

I made this quilt with the fabrics that came in the Culcita box.  I had left them out on my shelf and they were calling to me.

The block is the Missouri Star block.  I saw it on Pinterest this weekend and thought it would be a great fit for the fabric.

The binding is scrappy and I used chunky, Perle cotton stitches to attach it to the back of the quilt.  I have started finishing all of my bindings this way because it feels more secure, I enjoy it, and I think it gives the quilt a nice personal touch.  The backing is Kona Navy. I don't usually back quilts with solid fabric, but I thought it went well with the scrappy binding.
