It's nothing noteable, it's tied and actually made from all my t-shirts from my childhood memories. My grandmother belonged to a group that would get together every Tuesday morning and quilt beautiful patterns onto solid fabric, sometimes my mother would join them and I learned to hand quilt early in life. After seeing a few others quilting stitches, I can brag that I have a very good quilting stitch.
When each of my children were born I made a few more quilts and as they grew the quilts got bigger and I branched out of my comfort jone a little more. Until a 1 1/2 years ago, when I really embraced the whole pieced quilt & machine quilting technique. Let's just say I love it!!!
With quilting there have been sacrifices! I wasn't blessed with 26 hour days to add another hobby into my already full schedule. My blog name is simplescrapperquilts, well it was originally just Simplescrapper, because I was a scrapbooker. Scrap booking kind of fell off my schedule so that quilting could fit in. The design team I was on for 6 years ended and I started a new crafty life, and YES I do miss it at times. Especially the social network of scrapbookers all across the country that I worked with for over 10 years. Would I turn back, NO.
In February I started a buggy barn quilt that I really love. Whether it's the pattern, the Moda floral gathering fabric or the combination that I love most, I don't know.
In the middle of each star there is no quilting, if you look close you can see a safety pin. It won't stay that way! I am looking for the perfect buttons to accent my stars right now.
I quilted this with a "wonky" zigzag pattern. I feel it was the perfect quilting pattern for this quilt.
