I finished my Soldiers Star Quilt today and I entered it into the weekly themed quilt contest at Quilting Gallery its in the patriotic category and I believe it starts next Friday. I will try to remember to remind you all to go vote.
This was a fun quilt and it was fun to get a shot of Jared laying on it (was actually hard to get him off it) almost every material in it has stars (except the out side edge if you look at the white by the outside red points that's a wavy white. Even the back is a white on white stars pattern similar to the front stars but all white
On the quilting on this I did a echo quilt across all blocks that had color change (so the blue red line I echo quilted both sides) the blocks that were same side by side I did not echo those. This is most evident on the white star that is the solid one piece star around the entire quilt.
The quilt pattern for this quilt came from http://quiltscapesquilting.blogspot.com/ Deonn Stott created this pattern called Soldiers Star for the 2011 Accuquilt barn quilt design contest and won 2nd.
This quilt was a lot of fun. I think I am going to make another one of these in a littler size as its a fun pattern to do and I want to do.
