Birthday: Star Quilt

Mossy Meadow is a warm green; I think I will use it a lot. 

I cut the star out first. Then, using the kites from Stampin' Up's You Send Me Soaring stamp set, I pieced together the quilt.  I used both glue and snail tape to hold the edges down. 

When I first envisioned this design, I thought the star should have the point up.  But it just didn't look right.  So I put the the star askew; I like the visual much better.

Then I ran the entire piece through the embossing folder for the quilting effect.  I sponged the edges, added some layers, and added the sentiment.
