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.
