Feathered Star and Summer on the Way!

Here's a little project I've been working on. It's all handquilted and ready for a single binding. Don't you love how my corners meet?! So many old quilts look this way so I thought I'd leave it for a bit of added charm. This was another possible quiltalong, but I could hardly get it together with partial seams so scrapped that idea pretty quickly. The overall size is 16".
Last fall I won a giveaway from Vivian at Quilts and a Mug. This was one of the Joined at the Hip patterns. It was a kit and after looking at the fabrics and deciding all of them were adorable I made this. Do you know I have never bought a quilt kit before or made a quilt out of a kit? It was really nice to have everything labeled and the fabrics were perfect for this. I have all 4 seasons of angels, but because purple coneflowers and flags are my favorites I started with summer! I used fusible web and am hoping to machine applique this afternoon. Thanks again Vivian! I loved putting this together.

Miriam awarded me with the Sunshine Award for bloggers who "inspire others with positivity and creativity". Thanks so much Miriam. I am supposed to nominate 12 other bloggers, but it seems to me that we all run in the same blog circles, so to speak. I'm inspired by so many wonderful, positive, fun, beautiful blogs I would be hard pressed to name only 12!! So, if you are reading this consider yourself a recipient of the Sunshine Award.

  4. It's a lovely feathered star, Lori. That's yet ANOTHER project on my "try it someday" list. Your colors are so pretty. They definitely spell S-P-R-I-N-G.

    I'm glad you enjoyed using the kit. A couple of the angels were the first kits I ever used. Such fun to have the parts already labeled.

  18. Thanks for sharing another great quilt (and for good judgement about the non-quilt-a-long-ability of partial seams)!
