Star Quilt Done... It doesn't look too bad either...

I have had this on the frame for a lonnnnnngggg time. 

 I attempted curved cross hatching for the very first time.
 It is very difficult to photograph black fabric. 


 I had lots of stand and stare moments, I asked my friends on MQR for their opinions, I even asked my husband his thoughts.  All in all, I think I like the way it looks - particulary the back.  Hey, my husband even gave one of his biggest compliments... "wow, that's cool."   I used at least five thread colors, and I believe that I can now consider myself experienced at burying threads! 

Now just some binding by hand and a sleeve for the local quilt show.  I may hang this quilt in our living room for awhile.  I have always loved black quilts.

It looks great! I love to see simple shapes like that where the colour of the fabric and the talent in the quilting get to sing.

Extremely lovely! Make sure the sun doesn't shine on it. A friend in the know said "black fades fast". I had to laugh at the thread burying comment. Do you use a self-threading needle? Saves a LOT of time!!
