Another Star is a wrap! I finished hand stitching the binding on the weekend but the rain has been coming down in droves... until today! I was able to get a photo when I came home before the sun went down too far. You can see we had a wee skiff of snow today.
So this quilt has been in the works for several months but kept getting put aside while I worked on other things. I won a bundle of Kaffe Fasset bits and pieces along with some Martha Negley prints at the guild "sew in" in September. I used those along with some others from my stash. I love the way the stars work together to create another pattern in the negative space. I used the another star block pattern from Faith at Fresh Lemons and then placed the blocks on point and added in the setting triangles to finish it off.
I quilted the blocks on the straight lines but felt I needed to do something else. I quilted each corner with lots of straight lines and in the centre of each star, I did a funky squared off stipple.
The back is kind of wild and crazy. I got the crazy floral at the guild de-stash. I cannot remember what it is. Giant flowers. Then I added some solids. It is funny that the sun was just on the floral print when I took the picture.
So there it is. My first finish of the new year. Linking up with Amanda Jean for Finish it Up Friday!
