Finish It Up Friday ~ Lemoyne Star

Well this finish has certainly been a long time coming! I think I started making these blocks at the end of the last century! That would be 1999. LOL They are all hand pieced using 1930s reproduction fabrics. I made these 25 blocks and then they sat in a bag all these years.


Once I decided how to quilt this, the quilting went fairly fast.

Here’s a look at the back.

I didn’t have enough of the green so I added a piece of this yellow Denyse Schmidt print. I used the same yellow print for the binding.

Here are some pics after washing. I love that it truly looks like a vintage quilt!

I love that texture!

Have a great day!

    Awesome quilt, Katy! I love LeMoyne Star quilts, and using the 30’s reproduction fabric was a perfect choice….I like the green sashing strips and using the yellow corner stones really added so much….so did the yellow binding…. And the quilting is great!

    Katy,
    I love this quilt! Did you use a ruler to do the border pattern? I’m just getting started with my HQ16 and looking for ideas to get me started. Thanks for all your great posts and ideas.
