Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Functional
linpiration on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? Kona cotton, batting, backing, thread, quilt pattern, many cotton fabrics and a lot of time.Actually, it was made using a triangle piece of cardboard and cut lots of strips of fabric and sewed them all together and used the triangle to cut out the stars. Anyway, if anyone wants it, I can get the book name where it is posted.

What are you most proud of? That I had the energy and know-how to make it and then hand quilt it. I am older now and could never do this again. I had it appraised at around $3,000.00.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Buy the cotton fabric and go for it. Have patience with yourself as it is not an easy one to make. It is stunning when done but really looks best on the wall. I had it on the bed but it fell flat. It has to be far away to get the best view of it. It is one of my favorites but has to be sold.

Hi,

What do you mean? See the quilt in the photos? You mean see it in person? It is very nice but very heavy. Too heavy for the bed. It needs to be on a wall. I live in a park model so there isn't enough room for me let alone a quilt queen quilt on the wall. It would have to cover a window and we have few of those. Thanks for the comment!

I meant that I could not see the hand quilting in the photos.

So gorgeous. It reminds me of the old fashioned truly Mexican pinatas.
