    Star quilt quilted

    Managed to quilt out the excess interior of quilt and finally finished it and my brother picked it up today. He was beaming from ear to ear. Couldn't praise the quilt enough. He will be delivering it tomorrow to it's new home. Whew, so glad it turned out okay and actually quite pleased with it. Please note I only have about 8 quilts quilted under my belt and there is lots of room for improvement. Under the conditions explained previously, I am thrilled with the end result and wanted to share it. Thank you all for your encouragement!

    Hopefully I didn't make the pictures too small.

    Absolutely marvellous, you are doing great on your LA and the quilt is so pretty, love the colors and pattern. There are some tight spots you quilted through around the stars.

    It's beautiful! Love the colors, too.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Wonderful work! I love the colors, but the quilting really makes it pop!

    It's lovely and your quilting is wonderful.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
