Yippee! One more finish to add to Peg's challenge. The pattern is Boxy Stars by Bonnie Hunter.Half of the fabrics came from 2 1/2" strips or noodles that I had swapped at a Yahoo group, NickelQuilts, about two years ago. I bought FQs for the other half because I wanted a certain blues and greens in the quilt. The inner borders and binding came from stash. The outside border fabric came from Susan, my SIL. Doesn't it added that final touch to the quilt? :-) When Susan emailed me the photos of her fabrics that she bought for her first quilt, I coveted ...yes, I did! lol... that flowers fabric. After all, it has all the same colors I had picked out for this quilt, and it was meant for me, right Susan? LOL Well, she kindly sent it to me right away for me to use. I love how the fabric looks in the quilt. Thanks, Susan!
Here's the back side...It took me longer to decide how to quilt this than to actually quilted it. I spent 3 days of looking through magazines, blogs, and websites for inspirations and finally narrowed down to swirls and feathers. I spent less than 3 hours on Sunday afternoon quilting it... from winding the bobbins to taking mini breaks. It is freehanded with sort of large half feathers and swirls and echos around the shapes.
You know, I love this quilt! It's going to be very difficult for me to give this away. At least, I will have it for a few months longer 'cause it will be a Christmas gift.
