|Tell It to the Stars quilt top|
83.75" x 103.5"
Finishing this quilt top was my One Monthly Goal, so I am joining the September Finish Link-Up at Elm Street Quilts. I am also sharing with Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework, Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, and Finished or Not Friday at Busy Hands Quilts. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects that everyone is sharing!

Congratulations on your finish, it is beautiful!ReplyDelete
Stunning! All your hard work and deliberations were well worth the effort!ReplyDelete
WOW! That's all I can say, WOW!!ReplyDelete
This is so pretty! I like the turquoise, orange, and brown together. I hope you're feeling a great sense of accomplishment at getting this quilt to this stage! I know I would be!ReplyDelete
Such a pretty quilt! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.ReplyDelete
Redoing the setting triangles was definitely worth while. It turned out beautifully!ReplyDelete
Double congratulation, Julie. One for not abandoning the quilt, or passing it along to someone else to finish and another for remaking it so You can love it. It is worth all the extra hours you've put in because it is simply awesome. The last border is the perfect fabric for it. I love it, big time! ;^)ReplyDelete
What a history this quilt has Julie but it's well worth the effort. I'm glad you decided to remake the setting triangles they really sparkle now!ReplyDelete
I applaud you for sticking with the project and taking the time to remake parts of the quilt. It is a beautiful top and well worth all the time and effort. Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap!ReplyDelete
Some UFOs need to stay at that stage until the time is right. That's exactly what happened with this quilt. The results are just great. (And the outer border fabric is perfect.) Congratulations!ReplyDelete
Congratulations! That is really very pretty.ReplyDelete
Beautiful job Julie! I liked the black, but the turquoise is perfect.ReplyDelete
Yay for you! What a great finish! There is so much to look at in this beautiful quilt top. I really love the variety of quilt blocks and the blues you chose for the border piecing are beautiful. Well worth the extra effort you went to. Will this be a quilt for your own personal use? Also, the BIG question . . . how are you going to quilt it?ReplyDelete
You deserve a pat on the back. Pulling a quilt from your UFO pile and reworking it like you did is a major undertaking that requires patience and motivation. I love the result!ReplyDelete
Very pretty!!! It almost has a southwest vibe to it. Or maybe it's the fact that we had snow overnight and my mind head and heart are having yearnings to fly south sooner than we had planned.ReplyDelete
So inspiring and exciting to see the progress over the years. You added so much to this pattern!ReplyDelete
