Stars on top

November is already half over (how the heck did that happen) so I’m really motivated to get boogieing on the three quilts I want done for Christmas.

The first up is the celtic star quilt.

It took a whole afternoon, but all those stars came together beautifully. The secondary patterns look great, just as I hoped.

And I’m especially thrilled that I managed to keep those cornerstones all going the same way. (The fabric is directional).

I had just enough of this orange granite fabric to give it a nice wide border. At 64″ x 82″, it’s the largest of the three quilts I am trying to finish by Christmas.

I decided to splurge, and got one of the gradient backings that goes with this fabric line.

Now this one is in the to-quilt pile, and ready for the next trip to Mom’s. Onto the next!

    That is such a beautiful quilt!!! The black fabric just makes the other fabric/colors shine. Your border and backing fabric could not be more perfect. I also share that sense of accomplishment when working with directional fabric.
