Project

Amish Style Stars

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I was able to knowledge from two courses and make a quilt that I wanted. Six of the stars are paper pieced and six are strip pieced. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is not always necessary to follow what others do, you can take what you learn and put together something that you want.

Ladymax answered:
Many thanks.
Peggy Martin asked:
What a beautiful quilt! I love the colors you chose and how they sparkle against the black. I have always loved Amish quilts, too - I grew up in Northeastern Ohio where there are still many Amish farms in the area. It's also wonderful that you used the quilt-as-you-go method; it makes the quilting so much more manageable!
Ladymax answered:
Many thanks to yo for your comments and your inspiration. I love your course and have one more project to do, the New York Beauty. I have to get up enough nerve before I start the one.
Beth Teixeira asked:
This is a beautiful quilt! How much experience in quilting does one need to have to make a quilt like this one?
Ladymax answered:
Thank you for your kind remarks. It does not take much experience to make a quilt like this, just the right info. I have been quilting for 3 years and made this more than a year ago. It is a matter of picking the right fabric and the pattern for your skill level. Also the great Craftsy classes are essential to me. Craftsy taught me to quilt as I do not know any quilters.
