Or should that be galaxy of rose stars? I'll have to sort out what metaphor is best - still working away at these so I think there's plenty of time. Alison showed her amazing near-finish and asked to see mine. So here they are so far. There are 18 made so far.
They are time consuming, since each one has 31 pieces, but the stack grows slowly but surely. I never sit down to watch television without one in my hand. And since my husband and I are currently obsessed with the going through the back catalog of Battlestar Galactica, I am making fair progress. If you want to see the stars individually, go here to my Flickr set.
I have always wanted to send a quilt top out to a long-arm quilter, but I never felt like any of my quilts were worthy of such an honour. I do an okay job quilting on my domestic sewing machine. A quilt would have to be pretty dang special to get the LA treatment! The day has come. I sent out my EPP stars quilt to Shannon, and she did a tremendous job on it. Truly, it just sings. I could hardly stop petting it enough to put the binding on it. I never thought I could be one of those annoying women who says "I wish I could show you the photos", but apparently I am, at least for now. But I couldn't resist sharing this sneak peek, with the exhortation to quilt your dreams.
