It's Done - Dylan's Stardust Quilt is finished.

And he loves it. His big smile and hugs warmed my heart when I gave it to him.

The quilt label was the very last important step to finishing this quilt. This time I drew a heart on a piece of muslin approx. 5¼″ x 5¼″ in size
and I monogrammed  the following using my Janome Horizon machine.
We are made from Stardust so shine so shine Dylan shine.
Quilted with love for Dylan Howell,
18th Birthday,
by Grandma Anne,
25th May 2013

I stitched interfacing (stabilizer) to the front of the label (covering the label), stitching a scant ¼in seam all the way around the edge of the heart label, I then cut a small slit in the middle of the interfacing and turned the label inside out, the back of the label was now encased and all of the seams were enclosed,

then I ladder stitched the label to the quilt back in one corner by hand.

And a big thank you to everyone, who has encouraged me along the way, I have really appreciated all the advice and comments I have received.

 I am on the lookout for a new project to quilt for my next grandson's 18th birthday Lachlan. I will keep you posted when I find one.

Until next time. Happy quilting




  1. It's so beautiful Anne, you can see by the smile on Dylan's face that he loves it.
    A great treasure, keepsake from Grandma.

  2. Congratulations on the finish, Anne! You have given your grandson a wonderful heirloom.

    I also really like the way you did the label. A great solution for a two-sided quilt!

  3. The quilt is beautiful, Anne, and your grandson looks so happy with it too. I love how you did the quilting. The label is great too, and I love what you wrote on it. (I haven't seen the previous posts, but are the stars hand appliqued on?)
