Fairy of Eagle Nebula -Completed

So i have finished my Fairy of the Eagle Nebula quilt yesterday.  I gave up on the freezer paper about half way through and just cut the pieces freehand. I overlayed the entire quilt with a glittery tool. then stitched around every freehand cut piece.  Then I quilted it and my finishing step was to sew circles with crosses in them for the backdrop of the clear gems I added for stars.  I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.  I just hope the overall color impression is of cerulean blue since this is one of the 27 quilts that will make up the color challenge quilts for the Berea Quilters.
