    Christmas Star Quilt

    This is one I am keeping for myself.

    The pattern is in the McCalls Quilting issue of Nov/Dec 2011. It was made with Moda jelly roll, Flurries.

    It is about 52" square.

    Very pretty and I like the fabrics too.
    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.

    Great quilt! That pattern eliminates all the seams coming together in the center like in the Lone Star but gives the same look. I'd keep it too!

    First off--BEAUTIFUL QUILT!! Will have to look this one up and try! Question: I see the red and white fabric (could have been prewashed) and I see the red in the jelly roll fabric (probably not prewashed)---what's the best procedure for washing this quilt the first time to prevent bleeding? Synthrapol in hot? Anything else? Just wondering since I hold my breath everytime I wash a finished quilt for the first time. I usually do not prewash.

    yeah, you are keep this one. Your border really picks up the colors wonderfully. It looks great. I noticed your avatar. It is simply stunning.

    Thank you for all the nice comments.

    I never even thought of the reds running when washed. I think I will use a color catcher.
    If I use it for decoration during the season, hopefully it will not need washing too soon.
    Yes, my red was prewashed, but not the jelly roll.
