Quilted Christmas Mantle Piece

I took a class with Mary and she showed us how to make this beautiful mantle piece. I had so much fun making it that i actually made another one for a friend in which all her christmas decor is done in blue.

Orion Star Finished

I finished my Orion Star Quilt top by Eleanor Burns. I really am going to have to start labeling the names of these quilts. I ordered the backing im gonna to use on it through by Michael Miller. Exact same fabric the lady who taught the class was going to bring me for 10.00 a yard i bought onsale for 3.50 a yard. Woooooooohoooooo what a bargain

Orion star

Still in progress, Although there wasnt any major problem so far, Its very important to square off fabric as you are making the block. I could see where i could have had a disaster on my hands. My good friend Mary showed me how to square off the block without losing very much fabric. If you have been told not to square block until finished. Please do it as you go. It will be alot easier and wont have the potential of ruining the quilt by being all crooked and noticeable.

Orion Star

Quilting is so pieceful . watching cut up fabric come to life. This is the beginning of the quilt. First time ive ever used a flying geese ruler. I'll try and remember to take pictures during the process. Ive gone out of my box on the colors. Bill says it looks like cancer awareness. Could be.


I made these for my favorite aunt
