Shoot for the Stars {a finished quilt!}

Remember the sneak peek of an arrow I gave you a couple of weeks ago?  Well, here is my finished mini quilt, Shoot for the Stars. Shoot for the Stars

I used my friend, Sarah‘s Love Struck Arrow pattern and pieced them together with a "sashing" in between.  Then I embroidered Shoot for the Stars in a stitch I found here called the Hungarian Braided Chain Stitch.  My stitches aren't nearly as awesome as hers, but they'll do.  I also love the variegated embroidery floss.  It was a perfect match for the fletchers on the arrows.

And speaking of perfect match, I don't think there could possibly be a better binding for this quilt. :)

Here's a little closer look at the embroidery.

And here is the quilt hanging in my son's newly re-decorated room. I can't wait to show you his new bed quilt, but that will have to wait a little bit longer.
