Julie's Star Quilt

About 7 years ago, (yes, it really has been that long) I won a $250 gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop. I won this because I used the most fabric in the prior year's Stashbusting Club. We would report on our blog how much fabric we used and how much we bought. That entire previous year I only bought fabric if I needed it to finish a project and I was astonished at the end of the year that I had purchased over 100 yards. I would have guessed that I normally purchased about 100 yards/year on an average. I think I had estimated really low. Anyway, my daughter Julie helped me spend my gift certificate and this fabric and pattern was part of that. She worked on the quilt at retreats only and finished it at our Spring Break this year. I finally loaded it this week and finish it up this morning before she came to visit.

It's quilted with Bountiful Feathers, Omni Lite Tan thread and Hobbs 80/20 batting.

She did an excellent job at piecing. It's just beautiful!! Great job Julie!
