C'est fini

After an intensive quilting weekend, and a couple of evenings stitching binding (boooring!!!), the feathered star Christmas quilt is ready to be snuggled under during the holidays. We are having chilly weather these days and a soft and cozy quilt will come in handy - just need to wash it first. This is how it turned out:

The quilting is fairly simple and not very dense. I played with a couple of stencils; the one with the four hearts Rose gave me for my b-day in the centre of the stars:

and a border stencil in the sashings:

I planned to use the border stencil in the border as well, but couldn't find a way to fit it in the corners, so I ended up stippling the area around the twisted ribbon border.

I'm very happy with how it turned out!
Hope you all have a great week!
Sincerely, Anne Ida

Dear friend, congratulations!!! This is fantastic. You are soo clever to make all those blocks, which I think must be time consuming!And the border is so nice.
BTW: Have you signed up for the blue,brown,tan SBS swap? I have....

Gorgeous quilt, love it even more now that it's quilted. Ribbon border (is that it's name?) is beautiful, you really know how to make a quilt girl!!!

Did I miss the finished picture of your baby block quilt you were working on so long ago? Or is that still in progress?
