anniescrafty asked:
This is so beautiful. Did you do the quilting yourself? I am just finishing a BOM sampler (for myself) and am looking for quilting ideas.
Deonn @ Quiltscapes answered:
Yes, I did the quilting on my longarm. Just chalk a spine where you want the feathered vines to go, then quilt the feathers.
BarbP asked:
Your quilt is breathtaking and even more special having been done as a family project.
Deonn @ Quiltscapes answered:
My husband loved everything about it - the colors, the clean lines, the fact that it is called a Carpenter's Star, and especially that it was made by all four of his girls!
