If you're here from the Blogger's Quilt Festival, welcome to my little part of the blog world. I hope you'll look around a little bit but I know there are so many quilts to look at in the festival.
Well, here it is! My Stars Over Gnoma quilt is done and I'm sharing it with you.
I was lucky enough to win a stack of six inch squares and the Gnomas from Monica, just before they were available. My Instagram feed says it was 74 weeks ago that I posted this picture.
The colors are so fun and bright that I knew they would be perfect for stars inspired by Elizabeth's Sparkle Punch quilt
This was such a fun, whimsical, no pressure project.
This is the first quilt that I have ever free motioned quilted. My little sewing machine is great but very basic and I've never had much luck in my previous trials but I stuck with it and I'm really happy with my effort. After outlining the stars, I did a very dense stipple in the white at bottom and then some swirls in the blank areas around the stars.
Fabric ~ Winterkist by Monica of Happy Zombie and Kona Ash and White
Size ~ 33.5" x 44.5"
Designed, pieced and quilted by myself.
Having the Melody would have made it much easier to quilt this because of it's quilting table and variety of stitches.
If your interested please take a look at the quilt I entered in the Mini Quilt catagory as well.
