Hanover Stars

I have finished my version of the Hanover Stars by Red Crinoline Quilt. 

I used several Civil War fabrics. The pattern calls for 70 different fabrics.  

I used a solid Moda Bella sashing and made my corner stones from a very small scale black print.  

I just love how the solid star points just pop in the scrappy civil war print for backgrounds.

I used a tan Civil War Backing  and Tan thread.  I quilted using a damask pattern.  I used a Bamboo/Cotton Blended Batting for the first time.   It was so soft and nice.  I must say I LIKED IT.  

Just another close up of the star blocks.

Thanks for letting me share.

Medallion Muse - Big & Bold Pattern

I have been wanting to sew with the Medallion Muse fabrics since we got them in.  I had tried a couple of patterns, but it was just not doing the fabric justice.  So I decided to try simple.  I have made the Big & Bold by Cozy Quilt Designs before.  In the Bold and Beautiful Fabrics.

I just love how this patten is simple and really just lets the fabrics be the focus of the quilt.  It is a nice easy quilt to make.  Great for after some more intense sewing that I have been working on.

I think the black strip really let the bright jewel tones stand out.

I quilted it in black thread with a black swirl backing.  I used a dragonfly quilting pattern.
