Weekly Themed Quilt Contest

It's the Weekly Themed Quilt Contest over at the Quilting Gallery and this week's theme is Stars.

Weekly Themed Quilt Contests


My contribution is my 'Stars on Stripes' quilt, a simple design using a fairly bold floral print in combination with a more muted striped print.  I made this quilt in 2009 and it remains one of my favourites. The idea was to make a bed sized quilt but I ran out of steam half way through and decided to finish it off with some simple sashing in between. The colour of the sashing that I ended up choosing added a vibrant feel to this quilt and really tied it all together. The quilt measures 36"x 45". The star block is called Duck Tracks.



To have a look at all the quilts head over to the Quilting Gallery on Friday morning. Voting starts on Friday morning and will continue through to Monday morning.

  2. Thanks Linda...winning would be nice but is a bit unlikely looking at the other quilts. There is some amazing talent out there. I am just thrilled to participate and even more thrilled if I get a few votes.
