Quilting Stars




The finger tips are asking for a little break from the pointy needles! This mini quilt isn't going to be very mini! It will finished at 18.5"x18.5". Would be one of large mini quilt that I've made so far! I like how the quilting pattern for this mini quilt. It reminds me stars in the summer night time.  The repetitive line pattern around each wonky star shows different personality for sure!

I used the Mark B-Gone pen drew the hand-quilting lines, since there are points need to be match. I also made a quilting label in the back, which you can find in {here}. It will take another few days to finish up! There will be a trip to the craft store soon, since I just started the last spool of hand-quilting thread this morning.  If you are looking for how to hand-quilting check on {about hand-quilting} tutorial.

The daylight starts getting shorter each day! The natural lighting in the studio has been soft and the open window makes it a nice space to work around! Best thing so far, getting more cross off lines on the to-do list; wrapping up gifts, packing orders, replying emails, writing cards to family, and feeling energetic again!
