Finally!

Today's post will be short and sweet. You have heard me going on about finishing my star flower quilt top for quite some time. (Way too long!)


I'm happy to report that with the exception of some borders (awaiting the last step in the tutorial), this baby is done. I will focus on my backing piecing next.

I love absolutely everything about this quilt. It's bright and happy and every single star has polka dots. It's definitely been worth the effort.




The hubby has dropped the hint that maybe I should work on his "not quite a surprise" quilt while I am waiting for the tutorial. Sounds like a perfect plan!

Linking up with the always inspiring Amanda at Crazy Mom Quilts.

  6. This quilt is gorgeous, Jade! Great job! I, too, am a huge fan of polka dots. Nice work on getting dots into every star!

    I was happy to find your blog today and to connect with another Lower Mainland quilter. I was looking for your email address, but couldn't find it in your profile. Just wanted to say your work is beautiful and I'm impressed with what you get done with young kids at home! Mine are 6.5 and 2.5 and I'm not nearly as productive!

  7. Holly, thank you for stopping by! So nice to meet another quilter from the lower mainland. Sent you my email in an Instagram post. Thanks for pointing out the need on my page. I'm somewhat new to the whole blogging thing so I haven't got all the kinks worked out yet. :)

    You are too sweet... There are many days I don't even get a chance to sew but it makes the time I do get precious. Love your rainbow quilt, by the way. Totally awesome and contemporary. :)
