Giant Fall Star

Two posts in two days, can you believe it??  Amy’s Creative Side’s is allowing each person 2 entries into the Bloggers Quilt Festival and I couldn’t let my second entry go to waste.  This ginormous star quilt was made using Jeni Baker’s tutorial for her Scrappy Star Quilt.  Jeni’s blog, In Color Order, is another of my faves.

Most of my photos of this quilt are on my bed.  That was the only way that I could get a good photo of the entire star.  This is however a couch throw and I am entering it into the Throw Quilt Category.  It is a big throw, measuring 60 x 72.

The fabrics used were mostly Denyse Schmidt with a bunch of my favorite Architextures texty ledger print used as the background.

Simon was very involved in this quilt.  He made absolute certain that I used enough safety pins when I basted.
