    Exploding Star

    I cut this quilt top out tonight and just finished the piecing. The fabric is Sandhill Plums by Kansas Troubles. I just need to put on two borders and quilt it. This is my 3rd quilt in 4 weeks and I still have 1 more to do before Christmas. Thanks for looking.

    Love it. It is scrappy yet there is a major design. The design looks modern yet very old fashioned. Wonderful

    Actually, there is a story as to why this block is "turned wrong" in this pattern. This quilt is for my oldest sister (I have 8 sisters & 1 brother). One day my youngest sister was quilting a quilt for another sister and noticed a block was turned wrong. She decided to leave the block as it was since it was in the middle and it would require a lot of seam ripping. We later found out that it was our only brother that "turned" the block when she wasn't looking. So, long story short, whenever one of us girls is making a quilt for another one, we ask our brother to "turn a block" so it is in the quilt incorrectly! So, this will probably be a part of my family's twisted fun as long as my brother is still alive. LOL

    Turned block, what a great family story! Makes it so special. Great quilt. Are you going to take January off and just rest? LOL
