A THIRD QUARTER FINISH

My Giant Star quilt is done. This is the first quilt to be finished this quarter. Slowly but surely I'm crossing things off the list and it feels great! Original list is here



I gave it to Linda to do the quilting and I really like what she did.




It's all about the texture   : )

Wow Carla, this is so adorable! I was just today looking those fabrics and maybe I need to get some. I love your colours on the white but it's fun how different this pattern looks in different colours. Have you seen Judith's quilt (www.jude-justjude.blogspot.com) x Teje

Lovely quilt and the texture is great. Sometimes I'm such a topper that I can forget how lovely a "finished" quilt really is. haha working on improving that.

I'm doing a bit of catching up on reading blogs following my hols in France. I absolutely love this star quilt and the quilting effect is truly amazing. I can't wait to have some time to do something myself but in the meantime I can look at yours. Philippa xx
