Blogger's Quilt Festival - spring 2014 (Stars)

I love when it's Blogger's Quilt Festival time! I can go to a quilt show but stay in my pj's with a cup of tea!

This year I am entering my latest bed quilt, my Friendship Stars.


This quilt was 5 years in the making!
The pattern is from Quilt Sampler from fall/winter 2008.
It took so long to make because I needed breaks when it came to piecing the stars in the border and then adding the borders to the top.
My mom quilted it on her longarm machine. I asked her specifically for the feathers in the cream parts. I wanted it to look like they were weaving in and out. She had creative licence with the rest.

This quilt was definitely worth the wait.

I love the final product and it looks fantastic on our bed!
