    Here's some pics of the quilt I finished today for my mother-in-law. I love her to bits, and she's been more like a mother to me and has loved me as her own. This will be a Christmas surprise for her, so it'll be a while before she gets it.

    I made it with a Moda layer cake in the "Harvest Home" collection by Blackbird Designs. The pattern is called "Hidden Stars" from the "Layer Cake, Jelly Roll, and Charm Quilts" book by Pam & Nicky Lintott. I really like the look of the crisp white stars against the background fabric - I think I may have to make me one for myself some day in this same pattern. The finished size is 60" x 72".

    Nice quilt! I, too, like that crisp star look. The colors are warm. I like your label too... I've never put one on mine.

    Shame on you not labelling. If you had the choice of two antique quilts you could buy, both pretty, both the same age, both the same price, would you buy the one with the label, or the one without? What you put on a label is the ONLY information anyone in the future will know for certain about your quilts. Please reconsider.

    it is just beautiful!!

    i agree with you 100% that the white star really make this quilt pattern stellar.

    typically star patterns use the print fabric to make the stars and the white fabric as the background and this is just such a refreshing change.

    i really love your work, you are truly an artist and have a great eye for putting together pattern and color.

    you've made a 5 star quilt for your MIL and she just going to go thru the roof when she sees it.

    Awesome pattern! Did you stitch in the ditch? I could not see the quilting. Beautiful colors. I have the same pattern book and have considered using the pattern.

    Yes, stitch-in-the-ditch on all the seams. I used white for the top thread (since most seams were of the white material) and a tan color thread for the bobbin thread. A note about that pattern in the book - it says the finished size of their quilt is 59" x 72", which is wrong - their actual finished size would be 49" x 62". I added a 5" border all the way around (their version didn't include a border) which then brought it up to 59" x 72".
