Finish it Up Friday

I have a finish!!! Actually I have had it for a while now, but my lack of internet and fire season has delayed my blogging.

Ta da! My carpenter star quilt! I don't have anywhere to take good photos at my place in Phx, so I apologize for the bad pictures. The fabric is from a mix of Joann's and local fabric stores. I quilted the top in a light grey and the back in a light blue. I so wish I had better photos for you all! I really was looking forward to entering this quilt in the Bloggers Online Quilt Festival, but we had a fire in New Mexico and I miss it! 

I am really proud of how the quilting came out. Especially since I did it on my tiny Bernina Bernett! Lets just say, that quilting this quilt made me realize that I really need a new sewing machine.

Here is a photo of the quilt in its new home! I made my first quilt for my friend Wendy's first child. I am happy to say that this quilt is for her second! I probably would not be quilting today if it wasn't for her getting pregnant three years ago!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it Up Friday!


  1. Well, I think it's lovely. And I like your free motion quilting, no signs of needing a new machine.

  2. What a beautiful quilt! I'm feeling very inspired!!
