Carpenter's Star quilt

This striking Carpenter's Star quilt came from my lovely client, Brenda. I used my comfortable old friend, ribbon candy, in various places throughout this piece, which added movement and fluidity in contrast to the sharp angles of the ruler-work in the star and adjacent areas. Time consuming, but very effective I think. The high-contrast of colors and value make this one a dazzler, and hopefully my quilting added to the effect!

My quilting is all free-motion, hand-guided on a longarm quilting machine.

  1. Nice quilt and your quilting choices really enhance the piecing. I wish my ribbon candy looked that great! I still can't turn a corner with it! :-(.
