Previously known as the 4th of July quilt….it is now my 14th of July quilt. Only 10 days late…not too bad right?
I quilted this with super simple straight lines down the seams leaving the stars with no quilting on them. I had plans to free motion quilt this one…but thought it would be just too much for a quilt this busy on its own. I might go back and add a square of quilting in the center of each star…but I like it just like it is.
The back and binding are from the Denyse Schmidt collection at Joann’s. After using this collection in many quilts, I’ve had my fill. I just need to use up the few pieces I have left of it.
This is my favorite block:
Speaking of quilting…the Sewing Summit is sneaking up on me. I can’t believe its only 3 months away. I am teaching the class on free motion quilting and if you can come its going to be fun! Find out more about the Sewing Summit in Salt Lake City here.
I haven’t told my husband yet that he and the kids aren’t coming with me…just my machine and I are going to this one. We’ll see how he takes the news. :)
