Hooray - I finished my new quilt with about an hour to go. I'm still working on a title, but I'm thinking of something like "Sumptuous Stars". Or maybe "It's Like Butter". Here is a close up of the star block quilting. I thought I was only going to do cross hatch lines, but decided I wanted more, so did the straight ones, too. Isn't it always the way?
I did cable quilting on the borders. I used 2 different sized stencils, and decided to do the corner turns....it was tricky and the marking looked ridiculous before it was washed, but I'm happy with it.
The backing. As usual I had only a 2 yard piece, so had to add something. All I can say is 2 beautiful bird fabrics are always better than one!
Unfortunately, with the rain delay - no live tennis today.
I'm off to guild and dinner with the speaker. She is presenting Crazy Quilts and I'm really looking forward to it.
