    Default Finally finished!

    I finally finished my big star quilt last night! The top was 110 x 110 but after quilting (which I didn't think was that tight) it is now 107" square. Hopefully it won't shrink too much more because this is to be for my cal king bed. Click image for larger version.

    It's beautiful! What fabric line did you use? The flying geese border really looks nice.

    That turned out really nice. Your meandering is pretty tight, but it makes your stars stand out nicely.

    Thanks. I used History Repeated book 2 by Windham. It was a set of 22 fat quarters. I bought yardage for the navy border and used some brown from my stash for binding. I still have some fabric left so eventually I will make some pillows or shams.

    Thanks Karen. I was afraid that might be the case. It's in the dryer now so will try it on my bed when it's done.
