I'm afraid I'm not really up to the challenge of posting star quilts that I've done because I've only done a part of one. It's a batik star quilt which was a block of the month at the quilt shop I once worked in. My top is together, but without a final border...I just can't seem to decide what I want there. Okay, I really haven't looked too hard. :o)
I do have this Christmas quilt which has stars scattered through it...does that count? I received the 9 patch blocks in a swap about 8 years ago, and made the top at that time. The little pictures are all cookie cutter or hand drawn designs, fused on and buttonhole stitched in black thread. The quilt "fermented" for a few or 6 years until the borders were decided upon (this is the second set...the first set looked horrible!) and I finally quilted and bound it in January of this year. I love it...it's one of the few I've kept for myself and it's been living on the back of a rocking chair in my husband's little office all year...I just can't bear to put it away!
I was very disappointed yesterday...I found out that my other Christmas quilt, which was auctioned off on Saturday night, only went for $100. It cost me much more than that to make it! I am glad they made some money, I just wish it had been more.
And that's it from my little corner of the world,
