Friday Finish:Pathway to the Stars

I've only taken 2 quilting/sewing classes, both from my friend Colleen Blackwood.  She's the designer of this pattern, "Pathway to the Stars", as well as many other patterns.  She also teaches free motion quilting locally in NE Oregon and SE Washington. 

I just got it back from another friend, long-arm quilter and pattern designer, Marlene Oddie, of "Kissed Quilts".  I almost forgot how incredibly easy it is to drop off a quilt at a long arm quilter, then pick it up and simply add the binding!  She did a great job!!

Here's a few more details:

Here's the back.  I used up a lot of my batik stash of various fat quarters and a few full yards.  This is one of the biggest quilts I've ever made, and I forgot just how much fabric both the front and back take!
My husband loves this quilt as much as I do, so it's already on our bed :-).

I'm linking up with "Crazy Mom Quilts" Finish it up Friday.  Come check out what others have finished up!!
