Star Wall Hanging Ready for Binding

This post is a major photo overload. Sorry.

I really went crazy with the quilting on this wall hanging. I designed three borders and let the stars overlap the borders so it looked like the borders continued underneath the stars.
 I used just about every quilting design I could think of. It's pretty busy with pattern, but I like the way the gray thread looks on the Kona Ash background.
 In the largest open area that was left, I put in background filler ala Angela Walter. Just a touch of McTavishing.
I am such a novice.
 The woven border was made using a stencil design. I took a class with Beth Shillig and bought the stencil at the class.
 The outermost border is dot to dot. Next border is continuous curve. the third border is woven design.
 The star wall hanging will cover the spot where Uncle Sam is now hanging. The main purpose is to cover the fuse box.
 Aren't these rainbow batiks fun?
 This is now trimmed and waiting for binding. I hope to get it finished next weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.
