And who doesn't like star blocks, this one is sweet, but the Lemoyne star has to be my favorite star. Do you have a favorite star block?
After I finished the quilting this past month, it was on to the binding right away. I always make binding when I finish a top and I do that for several reasons. However, when I looked for this quilts binding, it was nowhere to be found. Did I not make it? What will I bind it with? Do I have any of these fabrics left in my
The quilting goddess was looking out for me, I had ONE fabric left and just enough to get the binding strips. Whew! And it was the perfect fabric to have available.
I managed to use up some crazy fabrics on the back of this piece. I bought them thinking I was going to make a black and white quilt, then I look at these and wonder, are they black or are they white? The backing is the perfect place for them.
A few details about this quilt. Blocks are 9" and have been hand stitched. I do machine stitch blocks together along with the strips in the sashing. Patterns are traditional blocks and are from a book I got in my first quilting workshop. Sashing has a center strip that finishes at 1/4". This detail really adds to the overall look of the quilt.
Now that I have pictures and details of this piece it's all ready to get gifted. My niece will be the caretaker of this one and that leaves me with one more nephew who needs a quilt. It's in the works, but I don't see a finish on that one until 2015!
Enjoy the weekend,
