Star Quilt Finished

I did it!  I finished the quilting on my Star Quilt.  I wish it was 100% finished but I still need to do the binding…my least favorite part.

I have some pictures to share but please keep in mind they aren’t the best.  It was super windy today so getting outdoor pictures was a bit of a challenge.  I’ll try to get better pictures once the binding is on.

I hope you can see all the feathers.  There must be a million feathers. I think I’ll nickname this one “Death by Feathers.”  But hey, on the bright side, I can probably quilt feathers with my eyes closed.  I’ve had hours of practice.

I probably could have taken a picture of the whole star.  Not really sure why I cut off all the points.  Duh.

I’m not sure I absolutely love the corners but they are growing on me.  I had trouble deciding on what I should do.  As you can see…more feathers.

That’s my oldest goofball photo-bombing my quilt pictures.  She had to help hold the quilt down.  It was so windy it kept flying up in the air. She’s supposed to be behind the quilt…what a crazy girl.

Here’s a look at the back.  It’s a terrible picture but you get the idea.

And yet another picture with all the points chopped off.  Boy I was on a roll today.

That’s my binding rolled up all nice and neat.  It’s actually attached to the quilt now and ready to be stitched down.  Now if only I had a binding fairy……..

    I wish I lived near you! I would bind it in a heart beat! To me it is one if the most personal parts of quilting! I sit under it. Watch a movie. Think about who its for. Reflect! Its kind of spiritual! I guess maybe because everything else is done on the machine. But I think your feathers ARE AMAZING!!!!

    wow this is stunning, you did a fantastic job on this quilt. I love all the feathers, and the corner FMQ breaks it up and yet still gives it that added interest. So cool and wonderful. Your little helper is adorable.

    Your feathers are fabulous! It is hard to stop the flow to change thread colors, but you did a great job. I love your corners and I see Lisa Calle’s influence in your border – spectacular!! Did you use her rulers to do it?

    Absolutely love everything about your quilt! The colors, the quilting, the pattern, etc. I pinned the small pic you had up the other day, and at least 10 people have pinned it! I wouldn’t be so hard on yourself. I am going to pin the entire quilt when you are able to get the points on it. If you would rather I didn’t. email me and
    i won’t.
