Curls, Swirls and a Few Straight Lines

by Nicole

Yesterday I spent the afternoon at Spoonflower teaching a class on how to make a wonky star mini quilt. It was fun seeing all the different wonky stars come to life.

To provide some inspiration for the quilting, I put together this sample.

Wonky Star Class Sample
I outlined each star and quilted the insides of each star differently, some with straight lines and others with curls and swirls.

It was fun putting this little one together and sharing it with the class!

Your quilting really is an inspiration for me. I love the wonky star look – very unexpected when you see it up close. You have definitely demonstrate how quilting is as critical as the pieced pattern. Love it and inspiring!

I love the quilting! I am still sorely lacking in any serious FMQ skills. Good thing I like the look of hand-tied!

Don't miss the giveaway on my blog, if you're interested!

My finish-it-up-Friday post was a lament about how hard FMQ is. This! This is what I am aspiring to! I will keep practicing, and one day will get this good. You have done some great work on this little sample.

I see the finished patchwork projects and they look so vibrant. But, once you quilt them it brings them to life even more if that is possible.

Those are some gorgeous stars!

Cathy March 23, 2013 - 1:51 am

Really lovely!

Snowcatcher March 23, 2013 - 5:18 am

What a great pattern, and the light coming through the wonky stars on the windows really adds punch!

Linda March 23, 2013 - 3:19 pm

Your piecing alone is gorgeous, but the quilting is magnificent.

Carolyn March 26, 2013 - 11:40 pm

So pretty! I love the wonky stars and how the quilting makes each one pop.
