This radiant star is one of my favorites in this quilt.
I brought this to my quilter and friend (Kat, A Thread Runs Through It) last January along with my jubilee quilt and birthday signature quilt and originally we talked about two threads with custom quilting, but ya know, after a year of it being gone I didn't miss it that much so I told her to give it an allover pattern. It would have looked fantastic with custom quilting, but I'm pleased with this as it is.
My quilter said I didn't have enough backing so she trimmed the top and bottom border so it would fit. By the time I was done trimming it I have 4 different size borders! LOL
Someone asked why I wash my quilts when they are done. If I have hand quilted they have been carted around for months and possibly years and if I have sent it to be machine quilted it's the same thing. I want to put a clean quilt on my bed. I do not pre wash my fabrics (I did with this one) and like to get all the sizing out and have it shrink up.
What did we do before color catchers?
Feeling good about this finishes! Am going to make a list of quilts to tackle in 2014.
