    Diamond Log Cabin Star Finished--Hand Quilted

    About one year ago, I completed the top for this quilt. I wanted it hand quilted and found a very nice Amish lady who does beautiful work and now it is in the "done" pile.

    This is the back with her amazing work. Feathers, hearts and each log was SID around the perimeter. She does beautiful work.

    Here you can see the SID. It is more pink than rose to the eye with a floral design in the fabric.

    Here is one of the diamonds that surround the center stars. I tried my hand at dyeing to get the color wash effect that I was unable to find.

    This is the corner triangle that shows her quilting. I hope you enjoy seeing a project finally completed. It was my first attempt at piecing and I am sew hooked on quilting now.

    Wow...what an amazing quilt. For a first timer, you did a fabulous job putting it together. Your quilter did a great job, too. Anxious to see your next one.

    Thank you for the the kind comments. My first post when I finished the top was more explanatory. I had seen Fons and Porter's show with Ozark Table Toppers. Made several for SS ladies and one of the ladies said, if you put all of those together you would have a quilt top and I thought hmmmmm. So I started looking for a pattern and found the one of Dunster's. I have sewed all my life. I made a mistake by telling my mother ( when I was about 8) I was bored and she introduced me to a sewing machine and an embroidery hoop. If I am bored now, it is my own fault. Those table toppers taught me a lot and I found this board. Since this one, I have finished several more. Love this board and the wisdom and hints found on it. I am sew happy in my little sewing space with my stash.
