The three quilts I sent to be quilted are back. Thank you, Tara, for fast service.
I have one of them bound, labeled and REALLY FINISHED.
It is from the Summer Stars Sampler Quiltalong that was hosted, oh, almost two years ago. Yep, I hate to admit it, but this top “aged” that long. (finish of top shared HERE, December 2010)
UPDATE: It appears that the information and directions for the quiltalong are no longer available. Sorry about that.
But, quick or slow, it is still a satisfying finish.
The quilt along was for the medallion center and the twelve large (12″) stars surrounding it. I added the top and bottom row of small stars and the pieced border to make it larger.
Shhh…don’t tell, but I am keeping this one, too. It is on the bed in my sewing/laundry/guest bed-room. It feels…almost naughty. But not naughty enough to make me change my mind. I guess I am just at a stage where it is time to keep a few quilts. That ONE quilt was getting lonely.
