NURTURE circle Square Stars
The Square Stars quilt that the NURTURE circle ladies made is finally done! The ladies made these blocks back in October and I assembled and quilted them.
It's taken this long because I decided first to make the quilt larger with some blank blocks, and then to do a more complicated quilting design.
I did some stitch in the ditch first (actually it's more like stitch around the ditch, but who's looking that close). Then I filled in the white crosses with a tight stipple and continued that into negative space.
With the tight stipple I could only do about one and a half crosses per bobbin, so needless to say it took a while and I stretched it out over several days to keep from getting worn out.
I was happy to find the perfect backing in my donated fabrics. Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to make this quilt!
