Brit Quilt post 3 (mini star quilt)

The quilt I showed as a WIP for the Brit Quilt swap 3 is all finished and has been received by it's new owner. I'm pleased to say that Vikki seemed genuinely pleased with it, I was hopeful that I was on the right track as she left some great comments on the group pool photos.
So here is the finished quilt.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out. This is the first time I'd used a binding in the same fabric as the quilt background and had toyed with the idea of using a contrasting fabric but I think the grey looks fine.

You should see the quilt I received, it's a beauty but I'll save that for next time as it deserves a post all of it's own.

Bye for now, Maria.
I'm linking up to amylouwho's sew and tell friday which is back after a summer break.
