Earlier this year the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild had a few quilt bees. For my month as queen bee, I decided I wanted scrappy stars. Any star would do, as long as it was low-volume against a good contrast background fabric.
Friendship Star and for a Wonky Star so everyone had easy access to the directions.
my new design wall to decide on placement of my blocks. I have a project bin full of 6" and 12" blocks that I've been adding to throughout the last couple years. This was the perfect opportunity to use them.
So Fine! because it is a very understated thread and it quilts up beautifully. The bobbin thread is Omni. This quilt took 8 bobbins to quilt. (The average crib quilt with medium/light density quilting takes about one bobbin.)
My tutorial for machine-finished binding can be found here.) I put it on the bed and it is a perfect fit!
Have you been part of a quilt bee this year? If so, did you finish your bee project?
