x-mas Star

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It looks wonderful and #1 daughter won the draw Christmans eve. It is hers now. 4 more kids to go this year. What advice would you give someone starting this project? take your time. Be spot on with your cutting and seams. Have a good sewing machine with the long arm for anything over a baby quilt in size. This project made me get out there and buy a new sewing machine I had been promising myself for YEARS. Thank you Santa! (my partner surprised me with it as he had been watching me struggle with my old old pfaff).

What you will need

  • Old Daisy Kingdom materials They always had such wonderful Christmas fabrics. My sister has bins full and I chose from them.

Q&A with DRH

marti richfield asked:
It's very beautiful. Do you have a download pattern for it? Would lile to make it for my niece how is deaf. Please help or answer soon. Thanks.
DRH answered:
No download pattern. I used Diane Hill's "Native American Star Quilts" and "Radiant Star Quilt" (out of print but I found a copy at Powell Bookstore in Portland Ore. they send anywhere) it is by Eleanor Burns. She has a more recent book but I listened to my sister who said the 1st book was the best for a beginner. With suggestions from both book mine went together really good. I am just finishing the binding this weekend. All machine quilting.. I will have to post another pic soon.

ShelbysMom asked:
I'm just learning to quilt at 70 years old, this is the one quilt I would love to be able to make one day. It really is Absolutely Beautiful!!!!
DRH answered:
Join me then and start quilting. It is a very simple quilt to do once you have mastered the basics. I have been an avid sewer all my life but wanted to learn something new. So here it is!! by the way.. I am 67. Never to old to learn something new.
