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