Spinning Stars Quilt
This quilt spent a few months bunched up beside my chair as I slowly whittled away at the hand quilting. It was one of those that just needed to be quilted by hand...
This Spinning Star Quilt Pattern has been on my 'to make' list for a long time. One evening I just dug in and started it! It's made mostly from various Anna Maria Horner fabrics, which automatically gives it that rich glowing feel.
You can get this pattern for free on Anna Maria Horner's website. I highly recommend it, as it is very easy to sew together. I had absolutely no trouble matching up corners, and there is nothing fiddly about the piecing at all! I'd say the hardest part of the pattern is having to cut everything out with templates. For the amazing impact this pattern has, I'd say it is so worth it!
The back is a voile, and I hand quilted it with bright pink perle cotton. I made the throw size which finishes around 54"x54".
Personal Update: We had our baby, a little boy, last week! Everybody's doing great, and I've already decided to move my sewing machine up to the dining room table for a few weeks so I can fit in a bit of sewing here and there! I have lots of time to think while I'm feeding the little guy, and the quilt ideas are literally bursting out of me!
