Blog for 2015
A look back at my creations and news for 2015!

I put off making a feathered star for well over a year. I tried (and failed) to find the perfect paper piece pattern. I finally accepted the fact that I’d have to do without that, and taught myself to make these stars using one of Marsha McCloskey’s genius books. If I may pass on what I consider to be the most important hint: 1/4″ seam means 1/4″ seam, and not one thread more or less. Anything else, you’re screwed.
This is my effort to get a good photo for a show entry. It never worked out, despite half a day of trying.

So then I moved the show outdoors. It was a perfectly cloudy day. I can’t say that it made my photo any more classy. But at least there are no shadows. It’s just hard to do a 107″ square quilt justice.

The quilting was fun, save for the 6 hours of ripping stitches out of the stars cuz the bobbin was psycho and I didn’t know it. Netflix is my friend.
