wonky star

Hands down my new favorite quilt. The wonky star.
It took 5 hours to quilt, with Ryan helping me (he sat on the opposite side of my machine and caught the excess fabric to guide the quilt back and forth ) 10 + bobbins, sore arms, shoulders and a sore toosh.
It was worth it. I debated on how I was going to quilt this one for a long time. I knew I wanted the meandering, but I also knew it was going to be a long process.
I kept the back simple. A stripe containing all the fabrics from the front stars. The binding is the same stripe fabric as the border.
The final size was 64 inches by 87 inches. HUGE for me. HUGE.


Needless to say, the sewing machine is going on vacation and so am I !
