    50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Star Quilt is Finished!

    I made this quilt with a group on the Board, hosted by Poker Diva, who did a fabulous job of leading us. This is paper pieced from Carol Doak's book and Foundation Factory CD of the same name.

    We did one block a week this year, and some of us finished early. I assembled my blocks in 7 sections, each of which I free motion quilted with a different design. I felt that this quilt was too busy to quilt each block; the quilting would have gotten lost.

    It is amazing what we can do, "one day (or one block) at a time."

    Wow..that is one of the prettiest quilts I've seen!!! I love it. Can you tell us what kinds of fabrics you used? Was there a method to the "madness/greatness"?

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
