Many of the quilters across our wonderful state of SC have taken the Galaxy Star class from Anita Bowen. It is a popular class and a stunning quilt pattern. I have seen it done in a variety of colors and all are fantastic. I would like to make one myself one day but then I would like to make a lot of quilts – I have a very large Quilt Bucket list. The next best thing to making one is getting to quilt one!
Thanks to Harry Sue (it is not a boy named Sue but a gal named Harry!!) I finally got my wish. I love her bright and happy stars. Those of you coming to Pieceable Retreat at White Oak will get to see this one in person. I did beadboard on the piano key border, a little curvy line in the inner border, continuous curves/pumpkin seeds in the stars. and then feathered the dickens out of the background. Fil-Tec Glide thread on top in a light gold and Magna-Glide bobbins in light taupe for the back.
