Quilting Fun

While I love the satisfaction of finishing a quilt, it isn't the only way to have fun with quilting. Fun also comes from the great outings with girlfriends, shopping expeditions with Grandma, or just sitting in my "thoughtful spot" chair perusing magazines and books. The thrill of the next project waiting just there on the horizon...

Same Pattern, Different Looks

Three of the Frankfort girls are in a guild, and every March they go on a retreat with that guild. One of the features of the retreat is a mystery quilt, available as an option if members wish to participate. I'd like to show you the wide variety of the quilts made from this year's mystery. It's remarkable to me that a quilt can take on such a variety of looks.

This is the back of the quilt above it. Cool, eh?

The pattern is from the Missouri Quilt Company, and it is called The Big Star Quilt. The directions are for using two layer cakes, which will make big stars in a big quilt, or two charm packs, which will make little stars in a small quilt. If you go to the MQC website, click on the tutorial tab to find a gazillion YouTube videos teaching all manner of quilts, including this one.

Makes you want to get right to work, doesn't it?

Happy Quilting, Friends!

I have this pattern on my wish list. I love it. And I agree with you, they each look so different, all because of fabric choice.

It always amazes me how different a quilt depending on the fabric used. And you're right, it does make you want to start working on it. Oooo... you've given me an idea!!
