Starry Night Giant Star Quilt (23)


23 quilts

I have made 23 quilts
and 
finally 1 will live on my bed!!

I finished up my 
Starry Night Giant Star quilt
last weekend,
but had to wait for a time where I had extra hands, 
and not bright sunlight to photograph it


4 corners on this quilt I have to pick the one that my quilting was NOT straight to photograph!!

I used Jeni Bakers'
Giant Star quilt tutorial, 
but made my squares bigger to begin with
so I ended up with a larger star
then I added 2 borders to make it queen sized


I used a mix of blue and grey fat quarters from my stash
and backed it with grey fleece

Straight line quilted it with 1.5 inch spacing
on my own home machine


Happy Friday!!

This reminds me of a snowflake, and I love the Winfrey colors!

Wintery; didn't notice spell check had changed it until it was too late.

It looks amazing!! And I like that you showed that your quilting wasn't perfect :) Mine never is either, there is always somewhere I've gone a bit wonky

How lovely, I just finished a giant star quilt as well. I had a hard time squaring up the blocks cause they were so much bigger than my rulers but I bet you didn't have as hard a time with that working with the solid prints. I imagine this pattern came together pretty quick. It's such a stunning result I'll have to add this to my "ugho gotta whip up an impressive quilt quick" list!

This is very lovely, Conni, good for you for making a quilt for your own bed! And hats off for quilting on your own machine ... brilliant :)
