The first post about blue Stars Around the Garden was posted September 4, 2020. It has taken me less than a year to applique, piece and hand quilt this quilt. That is actually good progress on a hand appliqued and hand quilted quilt.
Here is the quilt with the binding applied, labeled and washed to remove markings.
A view of the back side of the quilt taken outside. The muslin backing does a great job of showing the quilting designs.
A close up of the blue quilting on the backside of the quilt.
The next three pictures are of the quilting on the backing when it's displayed on my bed.
I like the way the quilting has turned out, you never know for sure if the design will come together like you view it in your mind. I would make a few minor changes but overall I'm pleased.
All the blue fabrics came from my stash, not a designer collection so this is a true scrap quilt! I did need to buy more of the yellow fabric.
Several people asked me last Sunday what I'm going to do with it. She's a donation quilt and will be sold during the quilt auction at the Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale which will be held Saturday, September 25, 2021 at the Elkhart County Fairgrounds, Goshen Indiana.
I was planning for blue stars to be a donation quilt last fall when I started piecing the blocks.
