I finally have a finish to share!
Several months ago my quilting machine was down for 3 very long weeks.....sad sigh.
So during that time I decided to pull out one of my unfinished quilts to work on.
This is the one I chose:
A close-up of mine:
I love American Jane patterns - by Sandy Klop.
And I love making lone stars - I know, a bit on the crazy side!
I had started it several years ago so my Janome and I spent some serious time together getting it finished.
There are 18 large 16" stars and 132 small 4" stars - sheesh!
I didn't do the triangle border - I thought it was too distracting.
I quilted a very simple all-over stipple in the center. Sometimes simple is best and I'm still in love with stippling.
The outer 2 borders are quilted with a 1 1/2" straight line.
I entered it in our recent local quilt guild show in the Traditional category - I won first place...yay!
Then, the public voted and I received "People's Choice"....double yay!
Yes, I cried a bit.
It means so much to me to have not only my fellow quilters vote this quilt their favorite but to have the public also think it's beautiful.
I absolutely love this quilt - it's a keeper!
For the backing I chose a pretty floral print.
Are you entering any quilts in your county, state or local shows?
