Hunter Star finished!

It is finished – except for the label.  It is hard to see in the picture, but it is quilted with stars.  When you first look at the quilt, it looks like cross-hatch quilting, but then you notice the consecutive stars.  It is a challenge for me to decide on a masculine quilting design.

I will be able to give Hunter his present on his birthday.  I can’t wait to see what he thinks of it.

When I was finishing the binding on the Hunter Star, a new project demanded to be started.  It wasn’t even on my list, but this cute table topper in autumn colors said “Make me!  Make me!”.   Does your fabric talk to you also?

The pattern is Crazy Eight Strip Teaser by Jae’s Attic.  She gives great directions along with lots of colored photographs.  I started this Saturday evening and finished the machine quilting last night.  Tomorrow night I will sew on the binding, then it will be time to tackle the alphabet quilt.
