Remember my four inch stars that I was feverishly working on? WELL....this quilt is not them! This quilt is another masterpiece by Joyce B., of Arizona. Isn't it just gorgeous? I love the way she chose to set her stars...just so lovely! Joyce also pieces her backs, to match the fronts, to use up her extra fabrics, and to clean up her sewing room, LOL!!!
TADA! Here is the back for her star quilt!! Can you even imagine...I would think that this is a wonderful quilt all in it's own right!!! Pretty, pretty, Joyce, and thank you so much for sharing this quilt with all of us! Joyce recently gifted me with some pieces, some extra hourglass blocks she had made...I am in the process of hoarding them. Hee!!! Now, confess...are you are hoarder too?
I have been cleaning, and cleaning, and tossing out stuff, and sorting out stuff...and I have made some progress!! Here are some empty baskets to prove my progress...and yes, it really feels good to have some space on the shelves!! My little sewing nook is only 4 feet x 6 feet, remember, so I really cannot be a huge fabric stasher...use it up, USE IT UP!! I am really trying, I am!!
Here is my hand quilting on the spool quilt that several of you mentioned...These spools are 3 inch finished, and I hand quilted around each "negative space" piece. It was truly great fun, and thank you all for the inspiration...I wonder how many spool quilts were made around the world???
Everyone, did you see the wedding of the century? I thought it was great fun, I did not watch it, but loved seeing the amazing dress and knowing that the lace was all made by hand...it was gorgeous to me!!
Have a wonderful day, everyone!!!
