Amazon Star

This quilt was finished, even to the binding, late last year. It took several years to do, so I was well over it by that point. It is a Judy Niemeyer pattern (Quiltworx.com) and finished king size. I love her patterns because they are beautiful and the instructions are very well organized. Maybe some day I’ll even make another one.Amazon-star

For now, I have dragged this quilt out and I’m putting a hanging sleeve on it so I can enter it in the show for one of my local guilds, the Smoky Mountain Quilters of Franklin, NC. The quilting was by a friend who’s done my quilting for years–WAY too much to try to quilt a king size on my home machine!

So this is a second “finish” for this quilt, getting it ready to display.ย  I’m glad I got it out of the closet and ready to show ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Quilt shows are a motivator sometimes.ย  And, since I’m counting this as my August Finish, I’m sending it to Aunt Marti as well!

  1. Nice quilt, Mary! You must be having gigantic feelings of accomplishment. I’m working on Judy Niemeyer’s leaf placemats, can’t imagine tackling such a large quilt.
