Finally, after sleet and snow, sunshine and rain, and a trillion other interruptions and distractions, this quilt is finished!
The quilting is in the ditch around the sashing and large stars to stabilize, then more stars etc. to fill in the center of the blocks and around the setting stones in the sashing. I decided that curvy quilting would distract from the piecing/blocks, so wanted to keep it real simple. If you double-click on this, it might show up better.
This one goes to a friend of a friend, a wall hanging to brighten a spot in her home and give her joy.
Now, onward... to battle the UFO's while the weather is cool and before gardening starts. Some plants are finally poking through, but together we are trying to ignore the small snowbanks lurking in the shadows -- mere reminders of a very stubborn yet slowly fading winter.
