cotton and steel star quilt

Processed with VSCOcam with e8 presetI finished this larger than life quilt last spring.

It was a commission project and it tested the limits of my small house.  By the time I stitched the last border on I couldn’t lay it flat on the floor anymore.  Needless to say, it was quilted on a long arm.

I used Jeni’s Giant Vintage Star Quilt tutorial for the center and then added borders to bump it out to a king size.  The eight small corner blocks in the borders were foundation pieced.  I used a half size version of Faith’s Summer Sampler Star tutorial.  The front is a mix of cotton + steel fabrics and a super girly pink was requested for the back.

I don’t know that it can really get much more girly pink than that!
