Giant Star: A Finish

I am so happy to share a finish! Here is my Giant Star...


I can report that I have nothing negative to say about the quilting on this one. What a refreshing change huh?! I ended up taking the top apart into quarters and then straight lined QYAG. The results - awesome!



It was hard to find a good place to take a picture, this winter just goes on and on. But This little green park building does the trick.




On the back was a special treat, a sheet I got at a yard sale. I love the black and white large scale flowers and the sheet gives the whole quilt a little added weight.


I have another giant star hanging in the UFO closet. But now I know how to quilt the sucker!
This quilt is my April Goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes so I will be linking up there when the times comes and it's Anything Goes Monday at Stitch by Stitch in just a couple of hours, so linking up there too!
Any finishes coming up for you?
I hope you get lots of sewing time this week!
Adrienne

  1. Nice! I'm curious about how you joined the quarters once they were quilted. You really can't tell this was a QAYG quilt.

  2. Looks great! Also, I really love your blog header with the brick wall. It goes really well with the quilt.

  3. I have a large star quilt ready to quilt as well. Did a test run of quilting on a small mock of the quilt and was happy with the results. Now just have to find the time to quilt it!

  10. Great quilt, Adrienne - and great photo location too. Not having seen it in person, I am wondering the same thing as Izzy - how did you join the quadrants?
