And for all of you that are visiting from the Quilt Festival and have never been here before, Hi! *waving*
So lets get to it shall we!
Good news is that the Blogger's Quilt Festival runs again in the fall, so can we all cross our fingers that i have it done in time for that one?!
So i thought i'd throw my Fusion Stars quilt into the mix for this round.
As soon as i saw Sarah's (Sew What, Sherlock) Fusion Star pattern, i knew i wanted to make an entire quilt out of it! What i didn't think about was the fact that i was going to need 153 sheets of paper (entirely paper pieced) to print out the pattern! So worth it though!!
I used a quilt as you go method for this one and i'm not entirely sure about the results. I guess i just don't like the idea of doing all that quilting and not being able to see it on the back.
Next time, i may try the method where you QAYG with your blocks fully sandwiched and then join them with sashing? on the front and back. Not really sure how that method works, may need to do a bit of research first!
With a finished size of 69" square i'll be linking this one up in the large quilts category!
Pop on over and check out my competition, some exceedingly good quilts this year!
Thanks to all my regular readers for patiently having to see this one again! And thanks to all my new visitors for taking the time to stop by! Feel free to come on back and check things out ;)
For more pics and details here's my original post on my Fusion Star quilt.
High fives for Amy's hard work, to give us this awesome opportunity to see some amazing quilts!
