Stardust Quilt

 

There are so many star patterns.  I love this one because it is not made of individual blocks; the quilt is made as one whole piece.  My aunt sent me the pattern, which is called Stardust.  I dug out some old fabrics I had bought on clearance.  I was so pleased that there was enough to make a queen sized comforter.  A bit of red in the border really brings out the berries in the filbert fabrics.  This was made by folding a 2" strip of red fabric, then placing it between the gold and brown border pieces when stitching them together. 

     After I put the quilt together, I used gold metallic thread on to p and cotton thread in the bobbin to machine quilt diagonal lines across the entire quilt.  This accentuates the stars quite nicely.  The gold thread tends to tangle in the sewing machine needle, but be patient!  I suggest you use a size 90 needle.  The quilt is finished off with a teal binding, which coordinates with the teal leaves.

     Thanks for the pattern, Diane!  I love this quilt and keep it on my bed year-round!

This wall hanging was also made at a weekend quilting retreat. I wanted to try my hand at free-hand machine quilting, so I signed up for that class when I found it being offered. We were to bring a project...
