Here is my latest quilt top. I just finished it up this morning and holy cow it is a whopper! I sure could have used a design wall with this one. It measures 92 x 104 and is the biggest quilt I have made to date.
The pattern is called "stardancer" and it is from the book 101 Fabulous Rotary Cut Quilts by Judy Hopkins and Nacy Martin. The book credits the design to Marsha McCloskey. I modified it slightly as the book said to make it with HST made from bias strips. I didn't want all those seams so used flying geese units instead to make the star points. It is by far the most colorful quilt I have ever made with mostly fat quarters and all different tans for the background giving it a real nice scrappy look. It is about 80% batiks.
This one is definitely going to be a longarmer, in fact I have my long arm class tonight. Hopefully I will learn enough and feel confident enough to rent time on their machine instead of sending it out. If not Green Fairy may be receiving a parcel :lol: I am thinking an over all repeating spiral for the quilting done in teal thread.
The kitty part, this was the fabric I built the quilt around.
