Curated Quilts Star Challenge

     Today is the last day to link up a quilt for the Curated Quilts Star Challenge.  I'm happy to say that I just managed to sew the last stitches on my binding at 7:30 this morning, before I got ready to go to a sew in at Guild.  This is the second time I've entered a mini into the Curated Quilts link up.  I came up with my idea weeks ago and then forgot all about it until I read about Patti of Elm Street Quilts entry.  



     I went with a minimalist Friendship Star.  I sewed each of the arms of the star in an improvised manner.  Figuring out things as I went along.  I joined the arms of the star together with straight line quilting with the walking foot and quilted the inside and outside of the star with shadow quilting.  I am quite pleased with the result.  The quilt finishes at 13 3/4" square.  I used a light grey and a denim which where two of the colours for this challenge. 



     Here's a picture of the quilt on point because I think it looks kind of neat like this. I enjoy working on these challenges as they stretch my imagination and my abilities as a quilter.   I am quite pleased with the result.  I'm linking up with the Curated Quilts linkup.  There are a lot of other star entries there. It's quite inspiring.  I'm also linking up with Beth at Main Crush Monday.

Friendship Star is one of my favourite quilt blocks and this is a great minimalist improv version. I especially like the quilting, especially the centre. Lots of luck with this one, gorgeous.
