Carpenter's Star

I finished the binding on this a couple of weeks ago. It's a little bigger than the lap quilts I'm mostly working on, so still no good place to take its picture. However, we did have some good light early in the week, so I draped it over the frame to take this shot.

I quilted feathers in all the colored areas, and a mix of straight lines and fills in the background. It's one of my more heavily quilted pieces. 

Today it's gloomy and showery, not so great since I have roofers here. They've found several bad places where the plywood has to be replaced before the new shingles can be laid down. Hope it doesn't get too wet in the process!


  1. It looks really good! I hope your roof is fixed soon!

  2. This looks amazing. I have been thinking about making one of these.
