Quilts with stars! Stars Oh My!

I have been working on a new quilt pattern that I made in EQ7!


All the fabric for this quilt came from Joann's. I know there will be quilters out there that will cringe at the thought but I am an equal opportunity quilter! I have a quilt that I  started in the early 90's and finished a few years ago that is made from this type of fabric. I have washed it a lot and have never had any issues with it.

If you look closely you can see that the whites don't match in some places.  This quilt is very far from perfect but I really do love it!

Rainbow Log Cabin Quilt - Finished Quilt Pictures

Just an update on some of my finished quilts. I finished the Rainbow Log Cabin. I love this quilt! I am thinking about making a black, red and white version.

I think next time I will do the feathers different. I am getting much better at them since making this quilt.
Next is the star quilt.  I love the pattern for this quilt.  It was one I designed with my EQ7 software.  This was the first time I have ever tried making star blocks.  I learned a lot about what not to do with bias edges!   This quilt Now resides with my daughter.  The quilt is queen size about 96x96.



I quilted this with an edge to edge feather design on my computerized longarm.
