I have talked about my attempt to machine quilt this double star quilt. It's my first attempt at machine quilting and I did not have fun. I didn't think I would ever get the quilting finished . It would sit in the corner for weeks before I would get the urge to work on it.
I used it for a table covering this weekend. As you can see here, it is very heavily quilted, which was one reason it took forever.
I really do love these stars. That center star is a 3-inch paper-pieced block. I forgot just how many pieces were in it, but it was a lot.
I am not a bit proud of the quilting on this one. In fact it ruined an othewise nicely pieced item.
But I decided not to get to upset over the failure. There is a positive side. I can use it as a tablecloth and not really worry if it gets food spilled on it!
I hope that seeing my projects will inspire you to begin or work on a project of your own.
