Star Quilt to Be

Yesterday I took an all day class based on Eleanor Burns’ Radiant Star book…what a challenge!  Most of the ladies were beginners.  I was surprised but admired them for being willing to take on such a challenging pattern for their first quilt!   I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped, but did manage to get one section of the star done by working on it this afternoon.  All my corners aren’t perfect, but its the best I can do.  One of the corners got torn out 3 times. Fortunately I started using a basting stitch to check to see if it was right before I did the final seam. I hope it comes out as beautiful as I imagine.

    Carolyn – I would say that if I was to choose colors for you; those would be the colors!! Love LOVE Love the choices. They look beautiful. How big are you going to make it? Table runner or queen sized????

      It’s going to be a queen size….if you remember our first house, this was the color scheme in our bedroom. Have always loved these colors.

    Came over from Stitchinggrandma. Love your block and agree it’s ambitious for anyone, particularly beginners.
