Full Bed Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I finally took the initiative to try a whole star quilt, thanks to Craftsy and Jenny Dolan, I did it, one block at a time, very happy I did! ;) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Jenny and just jump in. Start with one block and that will get you hooked. If you're not pleased, do another, until you are happy with it. Remember to have fun!!!

What you will need

  • I used motled FQ from Nancy's Notions in various colors against a black backround. The back was one piece of shadowed black on black leaf patter 108" wide. Machine quilted on long arm and hand pieced.

Q&A with DeGramma

NurseJulz asked:
Love the black. Makes the solids appear to be suspended.
DeGramma answered:
Agree, really liked using the blacks, it made the rest of the colors pop....although back is not a good color when you have to do any nighttime sewing...LOL :(
mo.sews asked:
Beautiful!! Amish quilts were what inspried me to try a black background on my B.O.M. quilt... love the results, but I concur with nighttime sewing... and any hand-sewing! lol "Mature Eyesight" sucks!
DeGramma answered:
Amen! ;)
