I often claim to have a Quilting "Hobby" in attempts to hide my obsession with fabric and color.

Hunter Star Quilt

Well, here it is! All finished, and ready to go....somewhere.

I posted the top before so there isn't much to post except the details of the quilting I guess.

I took a new step and tried out some embroidery thread for the quilting this time. It's nice sheen and color match made it pop on the back and it blended nicely to the front. My only complaint it that there are places on the light fabric where it looks drawn on rather than stitched in. I don't know if it's because of the fine gauge of the actual thread or if I'm just being too fussy.

I had a lot of fun doing a continuous line stitch around the stars and a free motion flower in the blocks. I also outlined the applique and then did a wave stipple on the boarders. This is one of the first quilts I can honesly say I like the back better than the front quilting!

Colors and Patterns will vary~ Can special order color scheme.

Anyway, the next project is another top that is already done, just needs to be quilted, and then I need to switch gears and start working on quilts commissioned for Christmas. Seems so strange to say that in July!

Also, since you are reading this....if you need a special gift for that pooch or kitty in your life, consider a "Blue's Quilt" for that special pet.

 I have renamed them that because the proceeds will be donated to support rescues that help save lives, in honor of our sweet Blue. You can email me or call My Quilt Corner for pricing and order details.
