    Stars in My Garden

    This quilt is 72 1/2" x 96 1/2". I did curly q-s around the applique, sort of a stipple around the stars & 1/2 sq. triangle borders, and leaves in the sashing. It's a pattern that I got from McCalls and is by Toby Preston. I quilted it using my Juke & frame. I had to rip out a pucker early on in the quilt, but after that it got better. It's a real stash buster.

    Very Pretty - which Juki were you using on your frame, I have been considering getting one. (Nice Quilting)

    Quilt turned out great!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Hattie Frances, I bought a used Juki TL 98 Q with a Gracie II frame off Craig's List about a year ago. It sews really nice. On a frame with the this type of Juki you will only have about a 4" strip to quilt across the face of the quilt. I would love to have a long arm, but don't have the space or the money for one of those. Although, this older frame says it will take up to a 13" machine and maybe one day I can upgrade to that. Even with the small quilting space I like putting it on the frame, because my knees can't handle my hard tile floor anymore. Debbie

    Very nice! Love the borders!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I LOVE your quilt!!! I cut this pattern out years ago because I love stars and star quilts!! I've also recently taken two classes on applique... what better quilt to make than this one? I think your quilt is even prettier than the one in the magazine and I loved that one too!! I'm tagging this one... so pretty!!!
