Finsh It Up Friday ~ Dear Betty

It all started with this Christmas gift from Daughter #1.


I immediately loved it, but it took me a while to find the perfect pattern for it. I finally settled on this traditional Rolling Star pattern.

These blocks are a whopping 18 inches finished.  I wanted the fabrics to really shine here.

I need a good place to hang a big quilt for pictures!

I used my pattern boards to quilt this with a Baptist Fan design. Here is the backing, it is part of a duvet cover I found on clearance. The pattern and color were perfect!

I just love the texture that the quilting gives.

I used Superior Mono-poly thread on top and white magna Glide Classic in the bobbin. It is currently living in my guest room.

 Sorry for the picture overload, but I love this texture!

I love leaving the door open and walking by this room.

I didn’t end up using all the fabrics in that bundle, so another quilt from this will be coming somewhere down the road.
