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.
