My Amazing Christmas Stars quilt is also done and in use. This was a Designer Block of the Month from Fat Quarter Shop for 2009 or 2010. It was hard to get a picture of the entire quilt inside my house, so the top two pictures are the left and right sides. The bottom photo is a closer picture of the center of the quilt and the third one is of my favorite block. My longarm quilter did feathers in an all-over pattern. The "amazing" part of this quilt's title comes from the fact that I could actually make this! It was the most complicated design I have attempted so far, and I really concentrated on accurate cutting and piecing. Some of the blocks were sewn several times to get them correctly sized, but the effort paid off. As a bonus, the Fat Quarter Shop was generous in its packaging of fabrics for each blocks and I have enough left over to make another small quilt.
And I have to brag about a finish of a different sort. We made a trip to Baton Rouge last week to see my son run in a marathon and were rewarded by seeing him finish 6th overall and 1st in his age group!
For those of you who, like me, have to complete a few Christmas gifts, I wish you successful finishes.
