HST Star Quilt
This is a pattern from Laundry Basket Quilts. A friend and I agreed on civil war prints and each made half of the HSTs. So it was a big surprise taking out all of her blocks and seeing what colors she chose. I tried to chose quilting designs that would accent the star. I did microstipeling on the background, and quilted the star in straight lines accenting the angles. The applique is raw egde finished with a zig zag stitch in clear thread. This was a ton of fun and very rewarding. I have it hanging up in my living room.
