Tribute Star Quilt

I *finally* finished the hand stitching on the binding of the Tribute Star quilt. 
It turned out so well!  
The pattern, Tribute Star, is a free Denyse Schmidt Pattern.

I used Tula Pink's Monkey Wrench fabric for the front and her 
108" wide coordinating print for the back.  
Seriously, the feel of this fabric was amazing!  
The aqua color is just stunning in person too.

My friend, Liz, did the quilting and it is amazing.  Click on the photos to enlarge.  

I got a few up close photos of the star portion of the quilting,
 which shows up much better on the back.  

I chose to do a two sided binding because I wanted the black on the front and purple on the back.
I didn't have anymore of the beetle fabric so I used the black monkey fabric.  

I am very happy with how this turned out.  
I received my fabric from the shop Something Quilty.  
If you need some Monkey Wrench of your own check her out!  
I don't think it is listed in her ETSY shop just yet, but you can ask her.  
She is opening up a brick and mortar shop soon and this quilt will be in her shop as a sample.  
Her shop is located in Wisconsin.
If you want to make one too, she can help you out!  
Just tell her Pam sent you!!!

I really like your star. Your whole quilt turned out really nice. said...

Pretty quilt. Would be fun to make and looks very simple, but with a wow factor.

Now you have me interested in the 2 fabric binding. I've done the kind where you end up with a piping effect, so I'm guessing that you cut 2 strips and sew them together, pressing and folding on the seam. Great quilt!!
