Blogger’s Quilt Festival: Hand Quilted

Today I am going to enter a couple of quilts in the blogger’s quilt festival! Each entry has to be a separate blog post, so you might get more than one today 🙂

This post is for the Hand-Quilted category.

I am entering Stars in Her Eyes, which I made for my lovely Nora last year. The original post about making the quilt along with more photos can be found here.

Here she is: isn’t she beautiful (I mean Nora, of course! but the quilt is beautiful, too).

The quilting is a simple pumpkin seed pattern with variegated thread by King Tut. I wanted the quilting to to be fresh and summery, so I didn’t want it densely quilted. This pattern suited it perfectly and gives motion to the stars.
