I am finally seeing some quilting finishes. This quilt is full of stars and is based on a pattern called Happy Birthday in the Memorable Scrap Quilts book. The name is appropriate because this is a gift for a birthday.
This quilt was made using lots of bits and pieces from my stash. Only the background fabric had to be puchased.
There were two basic blocks – the star and the square. I was surprised at how quickly it came together.
I had this one professionally quilted in a very simple pattern of swirls and stars – of course!
I like the way it looks in the border, too.
As you well know, one of my favourite views of any quilt is when the sun is shining in the window creating lovely shadows showing off the texture in the quilting.
I will finish off with something a little different. Guess who has been busy spinning and knitting again? This time it is with Alpaca wool/fleece.
