Blogger's Quilt Festival


My Starflower Quilt:

I finished this quilt a few months ago,
but it's one that I just LOVE,
so I'm entering it into the Festival!
Amy's Creative Side

These quilt blocks were made by the lovely ladies of the Peace Circle of do. Good Stitches,
using Jennifer's starflower block tutorial.
I asked each of my "stitchers"
to use bright, happy colors for their blocks.
When I was putting the blocks together,
 I debated adding sashing in between the stars --
but ultimately decided that I liked
the denser look of lots of stars!
I quilted this in an all over meander,
and bound it with yellow to keep it bright and happy.
(the back)
Thanks for visiting!
