When I first blogged about this quilt ~ Not My WIP!! 6-Pointed Star ~ it was going to be my first attempt at partial seams (AKA 'Y' seams). Taking on that challenge was well worth it in the end. Not only did I learn something new, but I got a gorgeous Anna Maria Horner quilt out of the deal!
|60" x 75"|
I had this sitting over my rail for far too long! Really I wasn't sure how to quilt it. So I ignored it and hoped a quilting fairy would come along and deal with it!
And she did...Her name is Vickey. Studio V offers edge to edge longarm quilting and has an Etsy shop full of fabric! (Studio V on Etsy) I met Vickey when she joined our local guild. I think our entire guild will be keeping her very busy ~ not even kidding! Its so nice to have a longarm connection that you trust, know and close to home!
I decided to go with Bubble Feathers for the quilting. And I love it! Especially the thread color.
The backing is Kona Cotton Glacier, which I thought was a great fit with all the colors in the stars.
The timing for finishing this quilt couldn't have been more perfect. Our weather dipped drastically yesterday! I'm pretty sure we didn't even hit 60 degrees and to me that is darn near winter! Not only did I get to wrap myself in this while doing some hand sewing last night, but I got to toss it on the bed for extra warmth too!
I'm pleased, over joyed and giddy with excitement with this quilt! Oh and did I mention...It's all MINE???!!
On another note, I have a stack of projects in their final binding phase ~ hand stitching the bindings. It is a simple pleasure that I love to do at night during TV time! Another happy place I like to go to!
