    Default Double Carpenter Star

    Finished the top for this and now to quilt it. I will be sending this to the long armer as it is way to big for me on my Sweet Sixteen. I just don't have enough room around my machine to manage it. Now I just have to piece together the backing and I am humming and hawing about that.

    That's beautiful. I've been wanting to do one, but so many others on the list first.

    What a beautiful stunning quilt. You did a great job. It's gonna look even more beautiful once quilted. Hope you're keeping it for yourself!

    Yes, this one is for me....but then again all of them are for me until after I've had them for a month or so and then I usually find someone that would love it....LOL!

    Wow, it looks 3 dimensional! I'm very fond of lavender & purple. It's beautiful! Backing ~ maybe a small floral print that has lavender & purple in it?

    Do you plan to use yardage & piece the sections or buy 108" wide backing fabric? I just browsed some of the backing fabrics. Check out Bali backs batiks - swirls purple; Solid purple in the wide back batik; also Romance - violet in the 108" width. I browsed only a few pages. I'm sure there are more options there.

    I love your quilt, colours. I know what you mean about sending to LAQ. My DH bought me/us a Sweet 16 last year so we could do our own quilting. The issue is that I only make large quilts, queen or King), only occasional small quilts. He has been working on quilting his King size quilt, and is re-thinking this decision.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
