Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Chain of Stars



Back in January I posted a pink and black pillowcase and said it went with Deadline IV. This is the quilt – my pink and black Chain of Stars.  It is in this month’s issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine.

Chain of Stars is Finished

This is my Red, White & Blue Chain of Stars.  Started in 2007, this was the first mystery quilt pattern I wrote.  I did this scrappy version and a version in Pink & Black using just three fabrics.  The photo is not great, but if tomorrow is as pretty as today was, I’ll take it outside to see if I can get a better picture.

It is quilted with basic straight line quilting on the diagonal, through the blue chains and diagonal sides of the star points.  This extends to the red border. Stitch in the ditch between the red and beige border and then curved stitching in the red border reminiscent  of bunting.  At least that’s what I was trying to do.  I used my favorite khaki thread for the quilting.

The quilt measures approximately 62 x 79 and there are two matching pillow cases.

Although this is not one of the three UFOs I plan on finishing for Finn’s New Year’s Eve UFO Challenge, it was a UFO.

What’s on my Design Wall

Not exactly on my design wall, but this is the quilt I’m working on this week.  Yesterday I bought fabric for the backing.  Tonight I’ll piece the back, sandwich the quilt and start the quilting.
