I lost a lot of sleep over this one








I finished this carpenter star just in the nick of time.  It was really easy and fun to piece - just half square triangles.  The quilting probably would have been enjoyable had I allowed more time to do it.  I hope I never do that to myself again...  creating ridiculous deadlines when I am most busy - the first week of school!  Anyway, I truly like this quilt, and I do like the way I quilted it, too.  I wish I could say it is all original, but I copied most of the quilting motifs (except for the swagged border) from my online forum friends at MQR.

It is gorgous Mary. I love how the quilting shows on the back and the combination of striaght lines and feathers. Why the tight deadline?

Love both the quilt and the quilting. I also love the straight lines and the feathers. Is it to keep?

Beautiful! Straight lines and feathers look so good together.
