It's time for a party - the Spring 2014 Blogger's Quilt Festival.
My entry is my Star quilt, based on the Jazzy Hands pattern from Material Obsession 2.
This was made from my stash using Denyse Schmidt fabrics and some dot fabrics for the backgrounds. I remember when I was choosing fabric, I was wishing that she had a solid line that I could mix in with the prints. Well, now she does have solids (hmmmmm, I wonder if I see another star quilt in my future.)
I started making stars to keep me occupied while on a long car trip. I found that most of the time in the construction is spent on choosing fabrics and cutting the pieces. I think I was surprised at how much I liked hand piecing the stars together.
The stars were started in late 2012, and the top was completed in March 2013. I put it aside for a bit because I wasn't sure how I wanted it quilted. I finally decided to hand quilt it using the stitch in the ditch method which was completed April 2014.
