Star Quilt…

Please follow and like us:

I finished this quilt at the beginning of last month, just in time to take it to Ohio and give to my little cousin.   I’m so pleased with how it turned out.  The colours are even more vibrant in person.

I started with the paisley print on the back and drew the colours out from there.

I had an idea of what it would look like in my head but during the process I started doubting myself.  It happens with every time!  However, I think it turned out even better, especially since it was my first star block.

I really love this quilt!

I did a variety of machine quilting on this quilt which differs from my usual overall stippling.

I left some spaces without quilting to give it a puffier look and to give the quilt more texture.

On the white borders I did stippling but I added hearts into it.

I think it’s time to advance my machine quilting and try some more difficult designs on future quilts.

I would love to get a long arm machine one day!  A girl can dream!

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
