Smokey Mountain Stars
I've uploaded the pattern for the stretched stars quilt to my website. I've called it Smokey Mountain Stars.
because it has that feel of the rustic cabin we will be staying in for a week.......we leave a week from tomorrow! I better get some projects gathered together to take!
Here are some pics of the finished quilt. I finished the binding last night, and waited for daylight to take the quilt outside to get some pics. I love taking pics outside. The light is just so much better and you can really tell the quilting detail...even on a cloudy day like today where it looks like rain (and I could see my breath..it's cold!) the pics just look better when I can take them in natural light.
Today I've got a little gal from my class at school coming...she wants to learn to quilt, so I thought I'd start her piecing on some puss in the corner blocks (the uneven 9 patch kind, not the crazy patch kind like I've been doing!) and work with her on keeping a 1/4" seam, some rotary cutting, how to press to oppose seams, etc. I think it will be a good easy first project for her and will look nice when it is done.
