I made this quilt for my DS1’s school fundraising auction.
It’s a half-square triangle 8-point star quilt. It’s laid out so that there’s a color change from green to blue to violet, like a dying star shedding it’s gaseous layers (nebulae are so cool). To make it twin-sized, I added a double border of the backing fabric and a coordinating marbled print. The quilting is a free-motion pebble pattern. I love the texture of this pattern.
I should have had it done sooner (working with a deadline), but my sewing machine decided it needed a tune-up in the middle of quilting. So, my old machine went into the shop, I bought a new machine, and ripped out all the bad stitching. I finally got it all fixed and finished this morning…Hopefully in time to still donate it.
