I am completing the Starry Night quilt which has lights included.  Does anyone have a good method for inserting the lights?  Cannot find proper size grommets.  Thanks.

I have seen that quilt lit up.  It's very beautiful.  Does the pattern say how to insert the lights?  Maybe your quilt store, or the store you bought the pattern from might have some tips.

The one I have says to poke holes in the fabric after applying some fray check. A pouch is made for the battery pack.

I brought. The kit and the instructions say make button holesb and make a little pocket at the back for the controller. Pat

Missouri Star Quilt Company has a video tutorial for this panel. She explains how to insert the lights and shows up close video of them inserted. I am quilting mine next week so was looking for more about how to do this myself. Here is the Youtube link:

I'm confused. I went to the Missouri Star website but they only have the green panel. I wanted the red so looked on Amazon. Same price for the package and it looks identical. But it says 100% polyester and is sold by Fields Fabrics.

Is this the same one Jenny has on Missouri Star website? They don't say it's cotton fabric. Does anyone know?

Judy, I just watched the MSQC video and it said under it that the fabric was made by Northcott Fabrics.
