Sunrise Stars

Pair gray, an updated neutral, with sweet pastels in a star-studded wall hanging. Use solids and near solids to balance some of the exuberant prints. Fabrics are from the Emilia and Fresh Solids collections, both by Camelot Fabrics. Digitized quilting design is from Wasatch Quilting. Sample quilted on a Handi Quilter Avanté using the Pro-Stitcher.
