The Star Quilt

Remember my telling you about the custom quilt that I was making? And the piecing for it that I was working on a little while later?

Well, it’s all done!

Custom Star Quilt Front

I was thinking that this might not get delivered until after the first of the year, since my fabulous long-arm quilter was swamped for the holidays. But she totally rocks and managed to sneak this one in amongst the holiday quilts.

Custom Star Quilt Detail

The star is pieced from shot cottons and one very tiny print in lighter shades of purple. The background is out of one particular color of shot cotton, but turned in different directions. I love how when you do this the light reflecting off it produces different colors. It’s a subtle difference that adds depth to the entire quilt and keeps the background interesting. And it looks just how I imagined it would.

Custom Star Quilt Back

The back is Kona cotton in lagoon, and the binding is Kona cotton in mulberry, I think. It’s the solid purple that most closely matched the shot cotton.

I took some photos for my web site before I send this off into the world, never to be seen by me again. I’m just waiting to hear back from the client to get this delivered!

I had a lot of fun working on this project. I’m always the most interested when I’m doing something new, and this one giant star was new and fun!
