HOUSTON STARS done!!
December 3rd I finally sewed the last binding stitch on the Houston Stars quilt, subject of many previous posts. It was a very happy moment. Many of my quilts are quite flawed but with this one I feel I've done my best and the result is all I'd hoped, all the sweeter because I have two other large tops waiting to be sandwiched which are so so but I tell myself at least they will be done done and interesting and lovable in their own way - like children to their mother!
I have still got a label and hanging sleeve to attach and I shan't get a good photo till it hangs at our group quilt show in July and I plan to show a quilt at Sandown for the first time. Along with others I'm trying to raise the profile of traditional bed quilts which has been somewhat subsumed of late.
