It is that lovely time of year again when the Blogger’s Quilt Festival gets into full swing and we get to see so many incredible creations from across the blogosphere. A quick thank you to Amy from Amy’s Creative Side for hosting this fun event! Make sure you visit the festival so you can see all the gorgeous creations!
I decided to enter the small quilt category with my Flowering Lone Star quilt. Those of you who have been with me for awhile are already familiar with this quilt, so I apologize for repeating myself. For those who are new, you should know that I have been on a Lone Star Kick this year. I’ve made 3 different lone star quilts and one block tutorial. Some ideas just get stuck in your head.
I decided to do circular spiral quilting on this one just to add some movement. It reminds me of a very still pool of water and someone threw a stone into it.
This quilt is reversible, I had lots of extra diamond pieces so I created a pieced backing, which later became the 2nd quilt. Gotta love reversible quilts. I call the backing Bursting Lone Stars. These stars are also known as Le Moyne stars – in my research I discovered that there are about 12 different names for this one block alone!
I didn’t intend for this quilt to be a Christmas quilt, but the colors just kind of lend itself to Christmas so this beauty will be gracing the couches of my living room throughout the month of December.
