OK, back to Shattered Star. First, thank you Jasmine for coming up with a name for this one! Now on with the show!
|Lighting is a little better this time. . . less blue than the flimsy finish post :)|
|Feathers and spirals. . . umm, I think I need to add some designs to my arsenal ;) They are just so much fun to do!!|
|You can see in those outside triangles I did an Angela Walters design in her book Shape by Shape - she however used the design in squares.|
|In the black center part of the stars, I did straight lines and filled in every other column with circles. . . If you look really close you can make them out.|
|And the back!! The bottom fabric is Robert Kaufman Spot On wide backing. Perfect! :)|
|A closer picture of the top of the quilt so you can see the quilting.|
Finished size: Approximately 65"x70"
Fabric - Unfortunately, I do not know all of the names. . . BUT I can tell you that the majority of the black on white text fabrics came from the Word Up FQ bundle from Pink Castle Fabrics. No, I am not affiliated in any way with Pink Castle but I am a huge fan of their bundles! I have noticed that this bundle changes as new text fabrics arrive on the scene. I did order another one - and was giddy to see some new faces in the bunch! For the border and binding and the back I used various prints from Spot On by Robert Kaufman (LOVE this line!!!). Also making it onto the back is my final piece of Widescreen in black and white.
Batting: Quilter's Dream Wool
Making this quilt firmly cemented my love affair of using a glue stick for matching seams! I did not rip one seam in the making of this quilt! Are they all perfect? No. But they are so close even that little snarky perfectionist in me was quite satisfied :)
I have mentioned this in every post about this quilt and I will say it again - this block definitely deserves another quilt! Next time, it will be done in solids.
I have lots in the works and another finish (my first attempt at a non-quilt project and a big ole fail but I'm going to share it anyway! LOL) to share with you. I need to spend some time at my computer writing posts instead of reading blogs ;)
Linking up with Finish It Up Friday. Check out all of the eye candy!! :)
Until next time, keep on quilting!!!
