STAR QUILT TOP

 
I FINISHED PUTTING MY SCRAPPY STAR QUILT TOP TOGETHER.
THE BLOCKS ARE 8" FINISHED AND IT IS SQUARE.
I'M NOT ADDING A BORDER.
 
THIS IS THE JO MORTON FABRIC I USED
FOR THE SET IN SQUARES.
I'M NOT SURE HOW I WILL HAND QUILT IT
YET BUT AM LEANING TOWARDS DIAGONAL
LINES. YOU SEE THAT ON OLD QUILTS AND IT
WILL GO PRETTY QUICKLY AN INCH APART.
 
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

A lovely quilt! You might want to consider fan quilting it.

Monique,
That is my favorite to do and I have done the fan pattern on a lot of my quilts. I was thinking I might like a change of pace on this quilt but I do appreciate your suggestion. You never know...I may decide to do the fan after all! Lori

Some day I would really like to sew a quilt. What would you recommend for a first time quilter? It would have to be an incredibly easy one because I can be quite daft at times! LOL

Peggy Lee,
I think a Thimbleberries pattern would be good for a beginner. The directions are detailed and easy to follow. Thanks for visiting. Lori

Love the simple stars Lori...all the fabrics from your stash...how do you prep your quilts for hand quilting?

HomeSpunPrims said...

Kelley,
The main thing I like to do is machine baste strips of fabric 4-5" wide around the outside of my top before layering for hand basting. The strips keep the outside of the quilt from fraying while handling. I use fabric I don't care for and won't use in my quilts. It's an extra step but I don't mind. I just take them off with a seam ripper before I sew on my binding. I use a quarter inch seam when I baste the strips on like you would for attaching the binding so this also helps to know where to quilt to. And it helps when hand basting as I run my basting out into the strips. Hope this makes sense. Lori

You make such lovely crafts~ you are very good at quilting, ..quilting is the one thing I seem to have trouble with, no matter how well I cut the pieces, measure..etc, it always comes out looking untidy. Your blocks look so well done!!!!
