    Wonky Star Christmas Quilt

    This quilt was sent to me by board member islandboundquilting, she pieced this quilt perfectly, we discussed quilting and decided to use varigated green thread in black and do feathers and holly leaves. I used hobbs 80-20 for batting. This quilt was a lot of fun to quilt. I love everything about and so did client. Thanks for looking.

    This is absolutely to die for! Love, love, love!! Islandbound did a phenomenal job on the piecing, and you did outstanding on the quilting. Just stunning!

    Very attractive! I love the high contrast between the light greens and the black. Your quilting highly complements the quilt design.

    This quilt is wonderful. When I first looked at it my thought was "I love the spiral graphics on the black fabric"....didn't even realize it was your quilting. How perfect.

    I love this too! The green thread on the black pops beautifully and I love the effect you got on the back from outlining the poinsetta flowers. You effectively made this quilt reversable. Islandboundquilting picked out some gorgeous fabrics and put it all together in a quilt I would want to keep out all year not just Christmas! What team you two made.
