My version of “Star Search” is up on Quiltmaker Magazine’s blog today. See it here by clicking on this link.
I don’t often custom quilt anymore but I just felt this quilt called for it. I didn’t stress out one bit over the custom quilting or my backtracking. Was it perfect. Heck no. But it turned out well and overall I liked the results!
We have the very last Scrap Squad quilt assigned…. bittersweet ending. I’ve enjoyed this so much! First, it makes you – forces you – to finish 6 quilts a year. :-) For a starter like me, that’s significant. Also it made me branch out of my comfort zone and try quilts that I would not have picked to piece. They have all been a joy (well, not one of them. One of them was a PITA but that might have been my fault and not the pattern’s). When Quiltmaker Magazine calls out for next year’s applicants, apply! It’s a lot of fun.
