Not up to shows

I got out the star quilt today and was looking it over, thinking about the blocking and binding, and I noticed something that is unacceptable.  The dark border around the center star is showing through the lighter fabric around the edges. 

Because of the precise measurement of that border, and that I was sewing the row of stars to it in a fussy cut manner, I marked where the row needed to be sewn.  I had gone over the quilt to make sure I was ready to have it quilted and I didn't see that I hadn't trimmed the excess dark fabric.

It's a nice quilt with beautiful quilting.  It's not perfect by any means, some star points are cut off, and this major flaw weighs on the side of  not showing it.


  1. I saw your beautiful quilt on MQ Resources. I'm not sure if this is the right way to contact you or not and I'm not sure if you can answer me here. Anyway I'm going to try.

    Will or is this pattern available for purchase? Thank you.

  2. Thank you so much for the comment and liking the design. I plan on getting the pattern together but it's going to take a little while. I didn't have EQ or other software at the time so it's just figuring with pencil and paper. I'll post it on my pattern page when I have it.

  3. Thanks so much Pamela. I'll watch for it.
