Big stars made by Alice

Two of last week's quilted finishes...
Big stars made by Alice
Two quilts, both large... 104 x 104 made with panels cut into diamonds and pieced by Alice into stars. Mostly oriental fabrics, these panels are birds. Love how the birds in the center of the 8 panel creates the swirl and great kaleidoscope effect all the way into the center of the star. There was allot of gold in the prints so both of these quilts were quilted with a gold Glide.

Quilting design is Seaweed by Anne Bright

Alice's second star is made with 8 Japanese Geisha Girl panels
She is holding string instruments and surrounded by flowers. Quilted with a floral design by Sweet Dream Studios stitched with the gold Glide thread on more gold print oriental fabrics that Alice used to make this quilt. Both are quilted with Quilter's Dream Puff Poly. A nice alternative to wool if you prefer a polyester bat, it has the same nice loft.

Enjoy your week
