Cottage Stars


Finally! The top is finished! The photo shows about 3/4's of the top because it is quite large....85 1/4" x 102 1/4".....and not quite enough space to hang the whole thing. There are 50 star blocks plus 18 side units plus 4 corner units. Each star block has 20 pieces and each edge unit has 10 pieces......oh, plus the four corner units, but who's counting!? (1204 sound about right?) It's a good thing that Cathy is on my "A" list. Yes, there was a lot of cutting and lots of pinning (which I seldom do), but I think it turned out really nice. Can't wait to see it quilted!

This is another shop sample for Cathie Z of Thimbles and Threads in Draper, UT. She's busy getting her new shop ready for the annual Shop Hop which begins all too soon.

The close-up picture shows the stars much better. You will just have to ignore the wrinkles from being folded up. It really does lay nice and flat.

Gorgeous. Love the pattern and the colors. Another pattern to add to my rapidly expanding list !!!!!!
Must have taken a long time to put together (at least for me it would have)

I can hardly wait to get this one quilted.....As usual, your work is impeccable. At first I was picturig an echo of the white hourglass pattern in each blue block. Then I squinted. Now maybe I see an interlocking nine-patch on point with a lovely design linking the blocks. Oh, decisions, decisions, decisions! No matter what I do quilting wise, the piecing is amazing. Thanks for all you do!
