Finished Quilt, and bad pictures...

I was waiting to show ya'll this quilt today, since it's friday, but I also waited until the last minute yesterday afternoon to get pictures. It was also too cold to trudge outside, so I basically just climbed out from under the quilt, tossed on the couch and floor to take pictures, and then climbed back under it, lol.

So here is what we're left with. I'm really going to have to take some better pictures when the weather is better and it doesn't look so cold and depressing outside.

I quilt this on my home machine (my love, a Bernina 750QE) with the walking foot and Aurifil 2600, the perfect gray. I did echoes around the stars, which gave it a radiating effect. I FMQ'd some echoing stars in the very middle, since it would have been way too much of a pain to turn that thing in the machine to use the walking foot.

I bound this quilt in the purple Acacia feather print, which is perfect for this. Really just perfect altogether, since I've already bought more... I hand stitched it using a variegated purple Aurifil thread (3840), which I adore, and it was perfect.

  4. Beautiful quilting. Those echoes of the center star are so perfect for it. If I had made a quilt that lovely I'd have a hard time crawling out from underneath it too! Yay for a beautiful finish.

  14. Fabulous design! The effect of the quilting with the gorgeous colors in your half-square triangles is truly stunning! I think that (someday) I will have to try and copy. :)

  15. Love, love, love this! I have an entire FQ bundle of Acacia starched and pressed and can't for the life of me decide what pattern to use!!! This looks good and really shows off the fabric. That white is such a great contrast. Awesome job girl!
