I have to borrow my DH pc and download pictures for you all to see I got my Reaching for the Stars quilt pieced together. This is a pattern by Minick and Simpson they published it in the Oct 2008 American Patchwork and Quilting magazine. I fell in love with the quilt right away..it is a king sized quilt..no I don't have a king sized bed..but how can I resist. (I love this magazine)
I pulled fabrics from my stash the only fabric I bought was the Background it has some pinkish stars on it and is not as bright as what it shows here in the picture
When I hung this thing there was no wind but then you know how it goes the breeze started to blow...so I ran to stop the quilt from dragging on the semi melting ground and took a big spill!! DH came to help me...LOL what we will do to dispay our quilts
Well I hope you like it now for the quilting. I debated about getting it machine quilted but have changed my mind and will be hand quilting this one it will be simple. I want to admire all those fabrics..don't ask how many there was.. the corner blocks are 32" inches I didn't measure the quilt... because there is no backing on the quilt the fabrics are brighter than they seem.
I would like to thank Minick and Simpson for a wonderful pattern everything fit together like a glove...I am going to make another one.. I am not afraid of "Y" seams anymore!!
