Friendship Stars Quilt

The Friendship Stars Quilt has gone together without a hitch ! It is as if you were all there cheering me on. Decisions on fabrics to use worked first time ! No fussing around trying all kinds of colours and prints etc. It just worked ! I am thrilled with the outcome and loved working on this quilt. I can't wait to make a start on the quilting, so I can snuggle under it this coming winter.

A few pictures, so you can see what I have done. I hope you can see your name on the stars. Sorry for the crooked quilt lol It's not easy taking photo's in my small sewing room.

I added the applique center, to work in with the blocks and increase the size of the quilt. You know I love applique ! So this block was such fun to do, I love the bird fabric. I have had it only for a short time, this was the perfect place to use it. The border fabric has been in my stash for years......... waiting waiting for that special project. Would you believe I only just had enough of the border fabric, it fitted like a glove. ( It was meant to be...)

I hope you like my Friendship Stars Quilt. I just love it, so glad I found these special blocks tucked away in that safe place. Lol..........

Do you see your star ?

Happy Stitching

Sharon

Invisible machine applique seems to be mostly associated with either smoke or clear monopoly or nylon threads. When starting my journey with invisible machine applique these are the threads I used too. Now of course there are so many wonderful threads available, many of them suitable. The only thing that may be of concern is that you need a variety of colours, with monopoly smoke and clear threads there are only two colour choices, therefore limiting how many colours you need.
