Bloggers Quilt Festival Fall 2015: Lone Star

The Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by Amy Ellis from Amy's Creative Side is on again! I am entering my Lone Star quilt in the Large Quilts category.

I started piecing this quilt in June 2013 and finished the top by the end of July. I had a go at quilting it, but didn't like the result and put it away. I finally picked it up again two years (!) later and this time I did finish it. The binding was hand-stitched on during a short holiday in Caloundra, a sea-side town north of Brisbane, so I went for a celebratory photo shoot there:

This quilt has been on our bed ever since it was finished. I love it and am so glad that I did not give up on it after all!

I originally blogged about this quilt here. Stay tuned for my second entry into the Bloggers Quilt Festival!

It is a stunning classic Linda. So good to have it finished and in use where you can enjoy it every day.
