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!

Stunning!! Gorgeous fabrics Val – so very pretty all together.
That is just gorgeous! I would have a hard time giving that one away.
Oh wow Val! The colors in this quilt are so perfect together. It looks like Lord Burton approves too.
The corner knots are a nice touch.
Gorgeous! The quilting will make it even more striking.
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.
Beautiful!! Love all the colors:)
I really like this star layout! Nice arrangement and the backing is fantastic!
