I finished my English paper pieced star quilt on May 2 - just one day before little Isaac arrived! I've been working on this quilt for a little over two years and it was about 90% completed while traveling or "on-the-go". This quilt is my second paper pieced project (and I already have plans sketched out for two more). I choose to machine quilt it in straight lines that created diamonds inside each star.
My plan when it was started was pretty simple; I wanted the stars to be green, blue, and purple and I didn't want any repeats. It slowly came together across five states while we were on vacation, visiting family, or watching the kids at the playground. It feel so nice to have it done and I was successful in my goal of finishing it in the for the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild's star quilt show!
