Starbirth, Carina Nebula: DONE!

I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!

Here is the finished version of Starbirth: Carina Nebula.

The photo didn't pick up the white quilting as well as the paler oranges. I wanted the quilting to be as integral to the design as the actual art of the fabric. I was trying to capture the wispiness of these powerful clouds.

Really wonderful! It's so unique.

What size is it? The dark back drop you have it against made me think that it would also look really nice framed.

That turned out so good, Elle! I love your whole Nebula series. And you did a great job with the quilting on this one. Yay you!

Happy New Year!

I like your quilting, and I agree that the dark background shows it off nicely. Jen
