stars around town complete!


Amy's Creative Side

I can't believe this! Finally after almost 2 years its complete! I know going to the Home Quilting Show helped. And also the bloggers quilt festival was also an incentive to getter' done.
When I look back on this quilt it amazes me. 2 years ago I barely knew how to quilt. My grandmother taught me how to paper piece then she bought me this quilt pattern and my first quilting show...this is a paper piecing quilt, all the stars are paper pieced and so are the buildings, there is also a little bit of some needle turn applique....i really had no business attempting this quilt!! but I learned so much! Like how hard it is to quilt on the bias. when you paper piece that tends to happen.
Now that the hard part is over I have to decide how to quilt it.  I'm going to quilt it on the Long Arm I just don't know what design to do?

I wish you could see the detail in it, its much better in person

I think I might stipple around the blocks with the buildings..

Thanks for looking!
