    About 7 years ago a non-quilting friend asked me to take beginners quilt class with her as she was interested in quilting and wanted a friend to go with her. Turns out she didn’t like making quilts after all. I made it in Christmas colors. I still have to hand quilt it. I forgot that it was hanging in the closet in the sewing room and re-discovered it a few months ago. I also forgot that there was appliqué involved. I haven’t done much appliqué at all. Appliqué is beautiful but I just don’t’ enjoy the process. Please ignore the wrinkles, it needs to be pressed. The star points are far from perfect! Hope you like it.

    It's approximately 41" x 41". Glad you like it.

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments :-P

    I have some Christmas fabric and I'm hoping that I have enough of the stripe for the binding. Have never done a "bias" binding before but have found some great tutorials on this site! I think it would look cool if the striped fabric for the binding angled like a candy cane.

    That would look great! Bias binding is easy, you will do fine. I haven't looked at the tutes here but IMHO cutting bias strips and joining them together at right angles (so you end up with a diagonal joint seam) is easier then the method where you cut two giant triangles and sew them into a parallelagram, mark it then sew it into a tube and cut one continuous strip from the marked lines. I always seem to have trouble lining up those marked lines correctly when sewing into the tube.
