Right now it is my grand masterpiece! The quilting was so much work on my little machine! I can hardly believe I got it finished!
Here are the pictures! Even if Christmas has been over for a while, we had enough snow to get a perfect presentation for the quilt-photos! Luckily, since the snow is melting away now. You can now find all of my quilting-pics on flickr , too!
|I think even folded it looks beautiful!|
|I really like this nested star!|
|Me all wraped up in the quilt.|
|The Quilt in it's full view|
|Also this Chevron Star |
is one of my favorites
|Beauty-Shot of the Quilting. |
I did loops only. I tried some creative quilting
on the large stars and did loops inside the dark parts
of all the Windmill-Stars, as you can see on this picture
|I think the nested Stars |
are the most beautiful!
Here with the JOY line from moda.
|This is my Backing! The fabric wasn't wide enough so |
I added the White strip with the large red star.
AND very exciting: My US-Mom's Block arrived! Remember the Icy Star Block I made and sent her for christmas? Now she has made the next Block. She says it's called Star in a Star! Lovely!!! I like like like the Block so much: She used different Background fabric in white, with butterflies on it to remind me of the town I used to live with them! Your guess!
|Cheryl's Star in a Star on the left, |
and my nested Star on the right! I'm soooo excited!!!
Also she has been using fabric from an old shirt and a sheet. I so much love this idea, that I have to rethink my fabric choice for my turn of a block! I'm not gonna say anything on this blog for now, since it must be a surprise! But I already found cute fabric which has kind of a meaning!
Right now I am very busy moving stuff from one room to the other because the kids will get a new bed and the larger room. This means many boxes are in my sewing room, not leaving me a lot of creative space, but enough to get some sewing done. I will have to finish my girl's quilt by March so I better get going ;-)
I will do and to you too: Happy crafting!
