Blazing Star

I finally worked up the courage to put this one on the frame and quilt it!  Definitely have thanks to the amazing quilters at MQR forum for tons of inspiration.  The top has been completed for almost a year.  The recipients are here for the holidays so I'm very glad to be able to send it home with them!

This is a Blazing Star (Lone Star, Texas Star, lots of names for this pattern!), made with fabrics from Henry Glass & Co 'Buggy Barn Basics' line.  The batting is Pellon Legacy Natural.  Quilting threads were Superior Threads 'Lava' (Red Hot) on top and 'Magna Glide' (Blueberry) bobbins.  First time for both threads - love them!  Didn't even take out the backlash spring from the bobbin case and they worked wonderfully.

My quilt hangers and helpers braved the snow to hold up the quilt in the sunshine.

I did a different design in each of the star points, wandering feathers surrounded by radiating lines in the corners, swirls in the border.

  1. Love it! Too bad it's going to its new home before you had a chance to show it at our meetings.
