Southern Stars Quilt top finished

I really enjoyed making this and love the colours. A bit of a surprise for me to find myself drawn to these smoky colours, but love them I do. I'm going to find someone to quilt this for me, it needs something other than straight line quilting which is all I know how to do. I've booked a tutorial for Friday at Patchwork Passion to learn the basics of free-motion quilting I'm really looking forward to it. However, am pretty sure I'll be wanting to put in a fair bit of practice before I go crazy on a quilt top I have spent hours making.

  1. Absolutely lovely! You should be so proud of yourself. I love the contrast in the dark and light colored stars. The red ones really pop!
    Get ready to practice with FMQ. Practice is the key! I remember how awful my first practice sandwiches looked, but little by little I got better, more even stitches. A little bit of practice everyday and you will be doing your own quilting in no time.
