    "Dark Ice" is Finished

    I was getting a bit tired of stitching all those stars. There are quite a few of them. It came out okay though. I am happy with the results. It is 60 x 60 inches and is the Boxed Squares pattern that I am so fond of. The back is pieced, and also blue. It is ready to be a Christmas present for Jimís youngest brother Chris. Here it is in a full view, and a close up of some of the stars.

    Great quilt and quilting! The stars look hand quilted? That would be a lot of work!

    Did you quilt this by hand? It looks like it and I really like the quilting.

    Oh, I knew I forgot to tell you something.....yes, it is hand quilted. It took quite a while, but it was worth the effort. I have thought of professionals many times, but can never afford it. And when I do it myself there is a lot of satisfaction.
