The holiday season has come and gone with nary a word from me....
but I did manage a quilt finish just before the clock struck midnight and we all said goodbye to 2015...
A scrappy Red and White quilt with stars and a pieced border...
I used a set of templates purchased from Amazon. The Simpli EZ Five Point Star set. Instead of squaring off the star, I chose to applique the the star 'circle' onto my background square.
Then I added sashing and corner blocks. And finished the piecing off with a pieced border.
This one is machine quilted, as well as, hand quilted with some Christmas Red Valdani Perle cotton!
It's not huge, but a good lap size for our chilly Ohio winters (if Mother Nature decides to grant us some chilly Ohio weather)
It's good to have a 2015 finish...and a new blog post for 2016!
Wishing you all a wonderfully productive New Year!
