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.

  1. It’s gorgeous! My mistake in the email, I thought it was off to be longarmed. I’ll go and mark it as finished for you.
    It looks great, and as I said before, I find this pattern and these colors soooo very attractive. It should do very well!! Hugs, Finn

  2. I didn’t know you wrote a Mystery Pattern. You did good! I like the curved stitching in the red border a lot.

  3. Beautiful! I love the colors!
