Star Quilt

I finally finished this Vintage Star quilt for my niece.

I started in it August.  Then I got the bright idea to hand quilt it.

I had never hand quilted anything this large, EVER!  What was I thinking??!!

I'm really proud at how this turned out.  It did take a long time and my niece never stopped bothering me.  Asking every couple of weeks if it was done.  She will finally get it tomorrow.  I hope she is as happy with it as I am.

I'm taking an online Curves class put on by Rachel @ Stitched in Color.  I'm really excited about it because I've never sewed a curve, ever!  She also has a Handstitched class that she is offering.  I took that last summer and made some really cute things.

I love this needlebook.  I use it all the time.

I'm also still working on the quilt that we started.  The Modern Medallion.  Here's mine so far.

I have the sides sewed on, but no photo of that.  It isn't laying flat so I think I'm going to have to do some ripping.  That's probably why I set it aside.

Anyway, if you are interested, enrollment is still open.  Go to and sign up.  Rachel is a great teacher and her blog is one of my favorites.
