Floating Stars 2013, 2014, 2015

Yes another quilt that took more time than expected -

Started the piecing of Floating Stars in 2013 - finished 2014 and finally as of this evening - quilted 2015

What took so long?   Number one its a 96x96

Number 2 Once I had the inner top pieced - I prolonged adding borders - my least favorite part of making a quilt.

FS hung in my quilt closet for over a year before adding the dreaded borders.

Another 6 months to decide how I wanted to quilt it.

Number 3, I must have changed my mind at least 6 times.  Once I had quilted the customer quilt yesterday with a new stitch design,  that I created - I knew this was the design for FS.

It took almost all day to do this but oh so happy with the results.

yeah I know its 2015 but split the difference because the quilt was actually finished piecing  2014

I really should name this stitch because it will be used again and again love the way it looks on a quilt

Anybody got any ideas for a name for the stitching?  Would appreciate helping me give it a name.
