I dream of waking up and finding all my quilt tops quilted and bound. I seriously need to spend a week on my mid-arm just quilting. I love piecing, but sadly, the actual quilting scares me! I feel like I should be pushing myself to try something fancier than a meander, but I’m afraid I’ll ruin my quilt. I keep moving on to the next project, rather than brave the mid-arm.
I pieced this quilt top a bit ago for my bed and it’s one of the larger quilts I have made measuring 74″ x 88″. The fabric is Color:FULL by Jennifer Sampou and I love the saturated colors and large scale prints. The scale is perfect for these giant Lone Star panels
Ever since I made my Scrappy Lone Star Tutorial, I’ve been wanting to make a bed-sized one. I decided to arrange the colors, rather than going scrappy and I also added 1″ sashing between each diamond.
I think my favorite part is the triangle border on each end. I’m a bit obsessed with borders right now (and yes, there is a random thread in the photo. I like to keep it real here.).
Hopefully I’ll have a finished quilt to show soon!
