Native Star Topper Finished!!!

This is a topper I started early this year and just put away. I really like the feathered star patterns and plan to find me a book with a number of different types of the stars. I am on the hunt!!!! I love all the little pieces and it turned out so pretty for my first one but even this color scheme is nice and the blocks are big so that made the topper large. This is going to be a gift quilt also. On to the quilting.

Smokey Mountain Stretched Stars!!!

I finally finished this topper. I have been working on it for forever it seems but it is now done. This pattern is also from Bonnie's website. I love all of her country cabin feeling quilts and I love working with men's shirts. They're worn and washed and sturdy so you know they are going to make great quilts.

This one was made with lightweight and regular denim because I wanted a little bit of heaviness but not so much that I'm unable to move under it. (You know the kind!!!)

It's also very big and was hard to photograph so I had to take it outside too. Notice the stars at the cornerstones??? CUTE!!!

Now for the quilting!!!!! Bye!!!
