    Carpenter's Star wall Hanging

    Quilted this Carpenter's Star for my customer Brandy this morning. I did a curved crosshatching around the center star that resulted in a really nice effect. I used Quilter's Dream Poly/Cotton batting. It is nice and flat for wall hangings. I love the bright vivid colors that she used.

    Beautiful star - lovely quilting! I like the simplicity of your quilting stitches, meaning it doesn't look "over quilted" to me! Nice!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I absolutely love it. I am working on a red, white and blue CS.
    Lord, please keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

    Very ice quilting-it's great to see a variety of stitches in the same piece-sometimes doodling just isn't enough (whatever they call it)

    I agree, the curved cross hatching was a wonderful idea. Beautiful.

    I love that! I'd never seen curved cross hatching but it's fabulous! As is the top itself... the colors/fabrics are too yummy! Both of you did great work!
