I finished a thing!

My Hank-esque hanger on the stairway now has something hanging on it!

I think the block is called Grandma’s Star and it uses just a few charm squares, I used Doe by Carolyn Friendlander and added the rest to my scrap drawers. The triangle at the bottom is a bit wonky but I’m trying to see past that. The quilting is just edcho quilting using my walking foot. This was the first time I had attached it to my machine and it works really nicely.

The binding (from a CF fat quarter- I think it’s from Botanics) and hanging sleeve were finished up at a coffee shop in Churchill Square in Edmonton last weekend. Alex was doing an exam and I had checked out of our hotel, so I needed something to do while I waited. An iced tea and a smoothie later and I finished it up!

It’s approximately 20″ long and 6″ wide.

This is a finish along quarter two finish!

    I like the sense of motion you get from the alternating colors in the stars points, do not point out that the bottom is not perfect, you are your own worst critic and a very wise teacher once told me that ‘finished is better then perfect’. hand made is rarely perfect but it contains much more love then anything from a factory.

    It looks great and that sounds like a nice way to spend the day! Has he had his results yet?
