More with the Stars

Part of the Quilting Conference this weekend included an all night Friday Sew-In.  My Mother-In-Law and I lasted until about 1:30 a.m.  Which is awesome because I haven't had any other time  this weekend to get down to the sewing room.  But I was able to accomplish a lot at the sew-in.

I got all of my stars put together :)  Thanks so much for everyone's help with the layout!!!  It really made such a big difference in the overall look of the quilt :)  Now all I have to do is get the borders added, hopefully today, and then it is ready to be quilted up :)


And I also managed to finish all of the diamonds for my Lone Star quilt.  Now I just have to sew together those diamonds and then insert the background.  You have to do Inset seams to do that, which I am a little nervous about because I have never done them before, but, it's all about trying new things right :)

  9. Your star quilt and lone star are beautiful Melissa. I have a tutorial for those set in seams, if you're interested :) They really aren't that hard, you'll do them just fine.
