FO: Starry Quilt

Isn't it lovely when you have a giveaway and then you don't show up for the opening? The winner of the Erin McMorris half yards, courtesy of FreeSpirit, is Marla!

Yay! I met Marla at the Stash Bash, and I am so happy this fabric is heading her way!

I'm also finally able to share my do.Good Stitches quilt, and it's a good thing, since next month is mine for quilting again.

I really love this quilt. I don't give purple a lot of love, but I think it works so well with yellow and gray in these stars.

Starry Quilt details

I outline-quilted each star, which was worth the time it took. I then filled in larger sections (such as the strips I used to connect the blocks) with free motion quilting. I held back from doing the square quilting around each star. I didn't want to overdo it, and I think I stopped at the right point! I used a lovely gray bias stripe to bind.

My sweet husband ducked down behind the quilt in these pictures.

I am entering this in Katie's 100 Quilts for Kids. Please enter if you can!

  8. This is very pretty!! Did you quilt this on a regular sewing machine? And if so, when you outlined your starts, did you do it with a walking foot? I'm wondering how this is done when you combine outlining with free motion. I'm new to quilting and have almost finished my first, a small quilt sampler, which I only did stitch in the ditch, with a walking foot. It involved a lot of twisting and turning, but the piece was only 40x40.
