Star Quilt that I just had to share. I worked on this on and off last year. Just finished doing the quilting of it. I was done using the embroidery machine, stitch in the ditch, and decorative stitching. It was a lot of piecing and challenging. I thought I was cutting acurately but when I started putting it together it didn't seem so. I believe this has been the hardest one so far. I have only been doing serious pieceing for a couple of years. Lots of simple Project Linus quilts previously. Thanks for letting me share.

You did a beautiful job on this quilt. It may not have seemed like it was going together right, but it looks wonderful here.

Thanks so much. The embroidery machine made the job much easier. However, it was 112 hoopings.

Great job. Beautiful quilt. I love the fabrics you have used. I have just started quilting my own. Only on small things. Want to try a large quilt next. Hope I can do half as good as you did.

Thank you! Have fun. I would still like to do a small one and hand quilt it. But not up to that challenge yet!

The colors,design,piecing and quilting are all superb. This is a beautiful quilt. Don't tell anyone you made a mistake while cutting, they would never guess it. Get ready to sit back and enjoy the compliments.

I think your points look great. I especially love the colors you chose. I have never tried quilting on the embroidery machine. I have a friend who does it all the time. It takes a very long time but it always looks perfect. You have a beautiful quilt. I hope you are in a quilt guild and plan on putting it in their show. If not you should think about it because, you have done a beautiful job.

Thank for you kind words. Yes, I do belong to a quilt. Just recently joined. This doesn't compare to those they have done. Some of them have been quilting for many years and I've only just begun!

cj2sew by cj2sew 21 Jan 2013

I know how you feel. I have only been quilting since 2005 but, the more I do the better I get. We have a quilt show in May this year and I have 3 quilts to enter. Not perfect but, they sure are pretty to me.

This is beautiful. I appreciate people who can stick with a project to the end. I get bored and move on to something else, hence many half finished projects that I may never get finished.
