I am pleased as punch that I finished my star quilt! This is the second large-ish quilt I've made. It measures in at 56 x 56 which was a struggle at times to quilt on my Janome. I usually stick to baby quilts for their ease in quilting, being so much smaller. But I'm glad I made this one and actually saw a project through to the end!
It could be a nice throw but I'll probably put it on my bed once the weather gets warmer, and the down comforter gets put away. We can only hope for an early spring!
I used a combination of some of my favorite prints from my stash. Bliss, Sherbet Pips, Pam Kitty Love, Ruby.... it will definitely be cherished!
For the back I used a sweet floral print I purchased at my LQS. I believe it's called "Rambling Rose".
For the binding I used a print from Sherbet Pips that I've been
hoarding saving. ;)
This is also the first quilt I machine bound on both sides. I tend to sew the binding on the front by machine and then tack down by hand on the back. For this quilt I pulled out my trusty walking foot and stitched away! I am quite happy with the results!
I got one shot out on my landing in natural light. It was so bitterly cold out today, and a bit windy so I only got the one!
The yellow and pink block is one of my favorites!
While I busied myself with taking pictures, the cats napped in the sunlight. They're not the only ones who appreciate all the natural light I get in my living room. It definitely makes the winter more bearable!
Off to watch the season finale of Downton! I can hardly believe the season is over already. One of life's simple pleasures for sure.
I'll be back tomorrow with some new goodies I finished for the shop. Hope you enjoyed your weekend!
