    I finally finished my Ohio Star quilt. The center of each block is a design I machine embroidered using the American Quilt designs from the Dakota Collectibles. I pieced the top but had a professional quilt it using her long-arm machine. I just had to show my quilt to someone.

    Your quilt is beautiful Linda. The Ohio Star is one of my favorite blocks. Nice work.

    Thank you. I probably should have included a close-up photo.

    Can you post a closeup of your machine embroidery? I LOVE combining the machine embroidery with quilting......

    I have now posted 3 more pictures of my Ohio Star Quilt. These show a close-up of the embroidered designs in the center of the block. There are 20 different designs, I have shown only 2 in these pictures. One picture also shows the shams and pillows I made. I think I did a pretty good job for my first quilt (sorry, I had to pat myself on the back.) LOL!
