When one has a cupboard almost overflowing with fabrics what can one do? Make a quilt of course!
A recent purchase of fabric had me searching for a suitable pattern, one that wouldn't take forever to assemble, and one that wouldn't cause too much stress. Something simple and hopefully effective.
I found McCall's 'Star in a Star' block and went from there. The finished effect was in my imagination ... and having a relatively
over active imagination the complete quilt was easy to envisage. In fact this quilt didn't take much time, no more than one month which to me is quick. I named this quilt ... Twelve Star ... no great imagination in that title! [sorry about the little extra light that sneaked into the top left corner ... it came uninvited.]
Once again I used the quilt as you go method dividing the quilt in half and quilting one half, then the other, before joining them up and quilting along the join. I do not have a long arm quilting machine, just an everyday Janome and am happy to have almost mastered this QAYG method. Today the final stitch was put into the binding, and a few tie knots [more for decoration that use] were added ... now what's next on the agenda?
