Machine Quilting ~ Lemoyne Stars

I got this small quilt loaded into the frame before we left town for the weekend. I got the quilting started and need to get back and finish it now. I used a tutorial from Kathy at Tamarack Shack to figure out the border design.


I’m using freehand continuous curves in the star blocks.

And a simple curved design in the sashing. I’m using templates from The Quilted Pineapple. I toyed with the idea of using an extra layer of batting, but decided I wanted it to have more of an old fashioned feel with these 30s reproduction fabrics. I better get moving if I want to get this finished up today!

Have a good one!
