Hooray - I finished setting and adding a border to my big star quilt -
I have to work on a better name for the quilt. Here it is draped on the railing outside my house-top sewing room. It turned out to be a pretty big quilt!
While unable to sleep in the middle of the night recently, it dawned on me that the only way to get this quilt together was to hand piece it - uugghh.
I cut this quilt out 2 years ago, you can see the post here. I am hand piecing it by eye - seems to be working well so far. There is a lot of prep in marking the center, clipping the curves, pinning and finally sewing.
I'm using the map I printed above to keep things straight. If you are considering an apple core quilt; DON'T. That is my advice.
Another Halloween quilt I'm working on is a new 4-patch posie quilt. Not as great as I had thought it would be, but we'll see.
Here are strips waiting to be sub-cut and sewn. I just love the illustrations.
Some close ups - what a funny vamp he is.
I hope you are enjoying some early fall weather - it has been great here in New Jersey!
