Hidden Stars Quilt

I have finally finished this quilt.  It took forever (at least it feels like it took forever).  All that I have left to do is sew on the binding.  I tried my fist ever attempt at machine quilting, and I’m pretty pleased with the results.  It was a little difficult to quilt with my little Singer, but that machine is a trooper!  I just stitched in the ditch, and I really like the results.

I pieced the back using navy blue (it looks lighter in the pics, but it really is more navy) and some Robert Kaufman Navy fabric.  This quilt is for my father-in-law, who is retired Navy, so I had to get the navy in there.  I also chose the star pattern because of the Navy.  Now onto the binding.

  2. Erica, Your quilt turned out really great. I like the star pattern, and I am sure Bill will really like it too. Another great job. Have you received your new machine yet? The one your won. I will be anxious to hear how it works. Happy quilting
