    Default Carpenter Star just completed

    Just put the last stitch in my carpenter star. It finished at about 50" x 50" and I put on "magic" binding. I did the FMQ on this as well. I am pretty happy with it. I have a few small boo boos, but I guess that is what makes it homemade, huh?

    I don't see any booboos. Just a really nice quilt. I love the sense of accomplishment you get with every completed project. Nice going.

    That is a beautiful carpenters star. Did not understand the 'magic binding' reference.

    We had a program at a recent quilt guild meeting and she demonstrated Susie's Magic Binding. Free Tutorial - Susie's Magic Binding I had never done it before, but it comes out pretty cool. No hand stitching for those that don't line to hand sew.
