This says it all!!………


This QOV top was made by Yvonne, a member of the larger quilt group I belong to. She is one active lady who can think of more ways to use fabric than any other I know. Her “Starburst” (my name for this) is described/pictured here. She always has at least one of these tops/flimsies ready to be quilted each month when we get together. The piecing is perfect and the theme is, well, I’ll let the quilt speak for itself……..



And, of course, I can’t forget a “back” view!……..


I used my favorite ‘paisley’ motif, with a simple 4 petal flower in the center of the “Friendship Star” and straight-line stitching in the star points. Was totally a fun quilt. Yvonne will bind it and a pillowcase will be used to keep it ready until presented to a member of the military. Until next time….

    The quilts are absolutely beautiful! The purpose is a very caring and the gift of giving. Paisley Prints are always such a pretty print, imprint, and markings. Thanks for sharing. Be Blessed, Mtetar

      But Val……you make it so easy!!!!! Thanks so much for “popping by”. This quilt stitching ‘thing’ is truly an addiction for me….but, it does keep me out of trouble (for the most part!!!! LOL!). Blessings……

    Amazing! You must really love quilting all those beautiful quilts. It must be so much fun.

      I sorta get “lost” when I start!! Just as DH……I kinda crawl in to my quilting world of stitching…….My Ms.Sweetie (HQ Sweet Sixteen) has been a huge blessing. I still quilt on my Juki TL2010Q and have fun (mostly micro-stippling). Both are super machines for me. Thanks for your encouraging words. Have a great weekend!! Blessings, Doreen
