Hunter's Star Quilt Has Been Gifted!!

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas day! We did, it was very quiet and we just kind of did whatever we wanted to do... all day long! We definitely don't get days like that too often.

One of the main things that I wanted to share with you was the Hunter's Star (a.k.a. Hot Flash) was given to my daughter!! It is quilted and the binding is applied by machine on the one side. Only the hand sewing remains.


Here is my sweet daughter with her new quilt. She loved it! I am so glad too.


Here is the back. I pieced it with more black and white fabrics and four different blue and teal fabrics. In the middle of the backing you can see the label that I pieced right into the backing. This way it will always be there.


This took a team to hold up for a full shot. Here are the details:

~the quilt measures 91 X 91
~I used Quilter's Dream White Cotton Supreme batting.
~I quilted it with an edge to edge design with hearts and swirls and white thread.
~the pattern is Hot Flash and can be found here
~tools used were Petite Rapid Fire Hunter's Star Ruler and the Tucker Trimmer which can be found here.
~I will finish the binding over the next week so that it can go on her bed. More pictures to come then.


Until Next Time...

At last we get to see it and it was worth the wait. What a big quilt, I'd love to see some more photos so I can see how you tackled the quilting.

Stephanie said...

Now as she snuggles under the gorgeous quilt she'll always feel her mom's love. It's beautiful.

I love this quilt! Adding the blue prairie points to the black and white center was inspired! Most folks would have gone with red, or maybe yellow, I would have never tried the blue, but love it.

Remember what someone told me about the quilt for my Dad, how it will hug him when I can't, this quilt will be one big bear hug for her whenever she needs it!

I've got the pattern and rulers, I hope I get to this project in 2011! Thanks so much for the inspiration.

What a magnificent quilt! An heirloom already

Poppyprint said...

It is so gorgeous, and HUGE!! Wow, that's a stunning finish. I bet she loves it. I think it's great that you pieced the label and quilted it right in. A quilt appraiser who spoke at our guild once recommended that, so the label can't be easily removed. I rarely remember to do that, though!
