It's o,k

The quilt top was folded away for several months I had made the star centre about 3 maybe 4 years ago . I was teaching a class how to make this star .Afterwards it was put away . Then when fishing around I found it again and decided to add borders . I didn't have a pattern . I just went along with what I thought would look right .  A few days ago I got it out again and decided to put wadding and a back on it .Having gone that far the only thing was to complete it . I hand quilted the star and machine quilted just straight lines on the borders . I have stitched the binding on 2 sides and shall finish the rest tonight . I quite like it now although blue is not a colour I go for . I might even do some more hand quilting on it .

You are so quick to finish your quilts. That would have taken me weeks. I love blue, and it is a beautiful design.

You pulled this one together very well! Sometimes, we lose interest in a project and can't find good ideas to make us want to finish, but this one is beautiful ~

I know how good it feels to finish an older project. You can have fun adding more hand quilting whenever you have the urge.

Congratulations on finishing a UFO so early in the new year! I'm LAO not much of a blue fan, but I find blue and white quilts charming and I'm currently making a b/w chevron quilt. Your quilt is beautiful and looks lovely on your bed. Barb
