I promised that I would post pictures of the finished Fireside Star quilt. It is already on my bed, and ready for me to try it out tonight. Can't wait to snuggle up under that wool and flannel!.
Here's the whole thing. As I said, because I was using recycled wool clothing, no pieces were big enough to do large areas, so several different backgrounds were used, as well as two fabrics for the large star points, and the border was the leftovers. Obviously it is not going to be making the rounds of the shows, but know what? I took it to my quilt guild for Show and Tell today, and they loved it. At least they said they did!
A little closer in toward the center. The quilting is a bit more visible.
Really zeroing in on the center. I love that quilting design and will most likely do it again.
Same design in the corner. The tan piece was maybe coat fabric, as it was heavier than some of the others. Really makes the pinwheels pop.
The quilting is much more visible on the back. As I said in the previous blog, this is purely a practice piece, and has bumps,bobbles, and birdnests. But it was a great learning experience!. Anyway, done is better than perfect, as they say.
