  • Carpenter's Star - my new favorite quilt

    So I have been doing the Pat Sloan Winter Solstice challenge. But there have been a lot of HST. Well thanks to that project for giving me the courage to make this quilt. I have always admired from afar, and said "one day".

    Well, I am happy to say, that I have enjoyed doing this quilt. I will make many more again in the future. Possibly as soon as next weekend. Since this one was started on Friday, and finished last night. quick and easy. Makes me wonder why I was so nervous.

    Can't wait to get it quilted and gifted to my BFF.

          Very nice! I made a couple a few years ago and really did enjoy making them. Try Card Trick too if you like HST.

            Stunning! You make it sound so easy; maybe worth a try. Going on the list . . . .the ever growing list.

                    Sometimes we just have to take the 'plunge'. Great job.

                          thank you all for your comments and compliments. I really appreciate them.

                          It went together very quickly and I just kept plugging along. The size is about 60 x 60. A smaller quilt for me. But it is large enough to be considered a lap quilt.

                          Thank you all again.

                            Where did you get the pattern? I have found several versions on the web but really like yours.
