    My Big Star Quilt Top, A Little Different

    I made my Big Star Quilt a little different. I wanted my quilt long but not wide, so I made four big stars (10" squares) and made a border for the top and bottom with stars made with 3" squares. I love this top. It measures 58" wide by 86" long. I used my favorite colors from the Mirage line of fabrics at Connecting Threads.

    I have to wait to get backing material and batting, but I should have it finished before the end of summer.

    Nice work! 8 pointed stars! Lots of them. Good for you. After I made one of them, I vowed to never make one again. Well, never is a strong word and I was duped! I thought 'Oh, I'd like to make a carpenter's star for a baby shower.' Don't know why I didn't realize it until I got to the center! Silly woman!

    Good for you! Your points look very nice!
    Go forth and sew!
