Superstar

My second to last quilt finish for the year! This quilt is Superstar, pattern in The Practical Guide to Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman.


I can't even remember when I started this one. I've been working on it here and there for the past year I'm sure. Then it sat as a top for months. I really couldn't come up with a way to quilt it.



And some things just need to evolve. The one block with the gray background... that was a spur of the moment addition. Oh, and the green too. Added that in when I made the last 3 blocks.



As it turned out the quilting couldn't have been easier! I used my walking foot and sewed organic {not straight} lines. Man, did that go quick! And finally the perfect diagonal stripe binding.


One more coming for sure... and I may eek in one more binding. We'll see!

  1. I like the addition of the green; it adds a little sparkle by brightening up the look. I also like the way you quilted this one. Could you explain how you did it? Do you start at one edge and quilt across, roughly straight?

  2. Fantastic, Cindy! Those projects that linger (for good or bad) are always the most satisfying to complete. I also love the background fabric and the diagonal stripe binding.
