A Star Is Born

Hello Everyone,

Back in October I blogged about this quilt here and here.  Then it sat on my design wall while I finished up customer quilts for the Christmas rush.  Now I can show you how much progress I made on my Glacier Star Quilt.  


The center "feathered" star.  I am in love with it!!


The Lone Star portion all complete as of Tuesday.  Pardon my deck, it really needs to be re-stained.  But it has been unusually warm here the past few days with temps at about 58 degrees so I just had to go outside for photos.  We will be re-staining and painting the house this summer.  It is one of those things that is on the "to do" list.


Detail of the geese.  Love the precision of the paper piecing.  So, now I need to set in all the corners and such.  That means 8 "Y" seams.  No sweat!!


These are the pieces that need to be set into the Lone Star.  You can see on the corner pieces I already did 4 "Y" seams.

The quilt...  AHHHH.... Paper Pieced Heaven!


I just love all the New York Beauties and flying geese.  But I bet you think this quilt is done... guess again...

I am making it larger!  Currently, it measures 60 X 60 and I will be adding a few more New York Beauties and flying geese on all four sides.   It will become a Queen Size quilt.

For those of you wondering:

~I used all batik fabrics
~it is a Judy Niemeyer Pattern
~it is a Technique of The Month
~it is taught only by Judy's Certified Teachers
~I will be able to teach this after my certification is complete in July!!

~you can find more of her patterns here.

Please hop on over to my dear friend Victoria's blog... Bumble Beans!  She did a Color Interview with me and posted it yesterday.  She what we both have to say about color.

** One last note ~ Pop on over to Quilt Magazine's site to see my newest blog post there.  It is all about batiks!  Leave me a comment telling me your thoughts.  Just click here.**

Until Next Time...

Wow, what a wonderful quilt you are making. I have looked at Judy's patterns but they seem way too complicated for me. Then I see what you have already done and I think about trying one. Love your quilt and am looking forward to seeing what else you do with it. By the way, I have a queen sized bed....hint, hint.
