Star Sapphire (aka Winter Star) is Finished!

It has come to my attention I never shared the completed photos of Winter Star.  This quilt was made for my niece in celebration of her marriage.  On a whim, I entered it into the Prairie Heritage Quilt Show and surprise, surprise! it took 2nd place with Founders Choice!  I asked my niece to meet me at the show and presented the quilt to her.  She loved it!

Quilted with SoFine, Magnifico and Glide thread, 2 layers batting: hobbs 80/20 and wool.
And for those so inclined, this is actually a kit from Jinny Beyer available for purchase.  I took me longer to piece it together than it did to quilt it!

It's not clearly seen, but gold glide thread was used to outline each of the golden scroll shapes in the larger borders.  Makes it stand out a bit more and adds a wonderful gold shine.

 My fancy beaded quilt label!  :)

 And now the favorite part as it shows all the quilty goodness!


  1. Did you use a full layer of wool or half? I'm about to quilt a star made from silk and trying g to decide on the batting. 80/20 and wool or wool alone?
