    New quilt and not so new to forum

    Hi, been on the forum for awhile but have never introduced myself. I'm Star lover. Been quilting since 1985. Started working full time from 2000-2012. During that time I never did a quilt. I had finished one just before working and never sandwiched it - no place to do it in the few hours I had. I've just finished my latest top, Friday. American Stars. It's the Katie's quilt pattern with a bit different last border. It's a queen size quilt. I hand quilt all my bed sized quilts, so I can sew them up faster than I can quilt. I sew during the day and hand quilt at night. Peaceful and relaxing.
    Hope the attachment comes through. My first time doing so. Thank you for checking it out! Have a blessed and wonderful day. You all make my day, every day.
    💫 Star lover

    That's such a beautiful and hand quilting will make it even nicer. So glad you are able to rejoin us.

      Very nice! I'm also a hand quilter with more tops than I can keep up with. At least that way, we never lack for peaceful occupation.

        Your quilt is very pretty, like your colors.

          Welcome from Canada. I love your quilt. I am also a hand quilter.

            Beautiful top. I, also, hand quilt and make large quilts. Takes a while, but so worth it. Be sure to post again when you are finished. I really like your last border too.

              That turned out beautifully. Even though I machine quilt, I also have more quilt tops waiting to be quilted! Welcome to the Forum from Colorful Colorado, where we have 300 days of sunshine!

                I love your quilt. I want to make a patriotic quilt this year and that would be a great pattern! Thank you for sharing.

                  WOW, that's a real stunner! I'm pretty new to quilting so it's awesome to see how color combinations, other than what's featured on the pattern, work. I've been eyeing "Katie's Quilt" as a potential project. Thanks so much for sharing.

                        Thank you everyone! You have all been so gracious and kind-you're the best! I'm already working on a new idea and can't wait to get started. It's probably the same way with everyone. It's the creativity, challenge and the excitement of the what ifs that keep us going. I so enjoy the entire process (except the sandwiching and basting - yuck). Love seeing all that you make too. Keep on sewing!
