My Star Quilt

I have always wanted to make a Lone Star quilt, but was a bit intimidated by the pattern–all those bias edges!  Well, Jan Krentz came to our guild last year and taught a workshop on this very quilt.  So I jumped in.  My star quilt only measures 44″ x 44″.  I knew if I made it larger, it would never get finished.  And it still wouldn’t be finished except for the fact that I wanted to put it in our guild show this past week (I finished it with 2 days to spare!).  I attached a solid green border that would show off my quilting.  I put two thicknesses of batting to give the quilting more definition.  I am quite pleased with the result.

Here are some quilting closeups.  The circles I thought added a funky, modern touch.
