Carpenter's Star Quilt
I just realized that I never shared the “finished” quilt that I made this past May for a fundraiser. This quilt is super easy and a real show stopper. It is basically a super sized version of a traditional Carpenter’s Star or Carpenter’s Wheel block, with a few borders thrown in. I believe it finished at around 84”x84”
I was able to finish this quilt up in about 3 weeks. This is the quickest I have ever finished a quilt, and my biggest quilt to date. I did custom feather quilting in the colored fabrics and a meander in the white areas.
I even pieced the back just for fun:

The quilt isn’t really that see through, it was just really bright outside. You can see the quilting a little bit better in the white areas of this picture.

This gorgeous!! Did you follow a pattern or just wing it? If you just winged it . . . can you share your math? :)

I love these colors so much... what a beautiful quilt! I gave you a thank you on my blog today for your 31 Days of Walking Foot Quilting series. It helped me fall in love with my walking foot and get a lot of UFOs done too!
