Lucky Stars – Finished!


I finally finished my Lucky Stars wallhanging today!  Gret suggested yellow for the binding because it’s in each of the stars, and I agree that it pulls it all together rather nicely!



I added little deal-a-ma-bobs to the back so I can hang it easier in my cube at work…


Thanks again to Elizabeth Dackson from Don’t Call Me Betsy for the fantastic class at the MN Quilt Show in June.  I don’t think I would have stuck to it if I didn’t have someone to walk me through the steps (this time, YouTube videos just weren’t cutting it).

I have another wallhanging project to finish up that I started at the quilt show, but I’m a lot less excited about that than I was about this!

Linking up to ‘Can I Get a Whoop Whoop!’ (a.k.a. Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict) it’s been way too long since I’ve linked up with her for a finish!


About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

    Absolutely stunning! You are a genius! I’m so proud of your accomplishments.

  3. Looks great Julie! I think the yellow was the right choice for binding – may have to use that for mine. Will look great in your cubicle at work!

    oh, this is lovely! You’re right, the stitching in the ditch is great on a piece like this. I love how the back looks, too.

I want to hear from you...
