For this edition of Blogger's Quilt Festival I am sharing my STARS Quilt-A-Long Quilt!!! Finally, I get to reveal the finish work :) I had so much fun designing this quilt and even more fun hosting this Quilt-A-Long. I just love meeting new people and making friends through this wonderful virtual quilting world!!
And I am so excited to share that I can now say there is a Printer Friendly Version of this Quilt-A-Long!!! I have been getting some requests so I bit the bullet and set to work converting 110 pages down to 18 :) I have uploaded the PDF to Google Documents and you can Download/Print it from here :)
Note - When I uploaded it to Google Documents the pictures got a little grainy. Sorry about that. If anyone with more tech savvy than me can offer a suggestion on how to fix that it would be greatly appreciated :)
So, I started this Quilt-A-Long last September, had a baby and then managed to finish the quilt top some time around Feb/March. Then it sat on the shelf waiting to be quilted. (for a while) Until the beginning of this month when I went to play on a Long-Arm Machine!! I posted all about that day here :)
I decided to really give the experience of Long Arm Quilting an all out go so I did my own Free Motion Quilting. I tried a new design for me and did echoed tear drops and swirls. It was so much fun!!! And I am so happy with how it turned out. Not bad for a first timer I figure :)
And now that it is all finished I have made my 6 year old daughter the happiest little girl!!! She has been waiting for this for a while so I am just ecstatic that she loves it so much :) And don't you just love how the Heirloom line totally matches her walls!! Fabulous :)
And of course, I couldn't show pictures of the quilt on her bed with her old Cinderella pillow case. That would just spoil the whole effect. So yesterday I whipped up 2 new pillow cases. They are the perfect finishing touches :) (Although, now I am thinking about doing one more decor pillow with a star on it :)
So that's my STARS quilt!!! If you are new, thank you so much for visiting. If you are a regular Happy Quilting Reader, Thanks for all of your support!!! Enjoy Blogger's Quilt Festival :)
Oh, and one last little note . . . Since I am now officially done with this Quilt-A-Long it is probably time to start a new one . . . What do you think, are you ready to Quilt-A-Long???
