I did it! I have finished the 6-point star.
So I did.
Then I stopped. I couldn't figure out how to even out the edges. The quilt found its way to a bin in the sewing room for about 10-12 years. I finally did what I thought was impossible: I whacked off the points of those outer stars. It didn't hurt at much as I thought it would. *grin* This post shows those whacked off points.
In November of last year, I put the quilt into the quilt frame. Since it had been entirely hand pieced, it seemed only a matter of course that it would have to be hand quilted, as well.
As I do a lot of things, my work occurred in spurts. I'd go like mad at it for a few weeks, then I would barely touch it. I even took the frame down through the Christmas holidays and hid it in the sewing room.
I am very relieved to have a finish. It's like an old friend, I've spent so much time with it in recent weeks. Make that months. Or years. We go way back, I guess you could say.
Today, I will be helping out at the Ross County Fair as quilts are entered. It will be a long afternoon, and I will even enter a few of my own this year.
I did go to the Circleville Quilt Show yesterday, and it was spectacular! I took quite a few pictures, and I will be getting those organized and edited ASAP. Stay tuned.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
