A Friday Finish!

It's finished!
Blast Off! Designed by Debby Kratovil
As you can see, the quilting is nothing fancy, mostly lots of loopy, squiggly lines. I attempted straight lines to echo the star shape...they're almost straight, but not perfect. It's meant to be a child's quilt though, so I don't think he'll be sizing up those lines too closely.
This was my first flannel quilt and some of those star points are really bulky. Where the corners of two stars meet I had to press the seams open rather than to one side. It just wouldn't work otherwise. Lesson learned...don't use flannel for blocks that have so many fabrics meeting in one place.

I'm linking up today with Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts , Paper Piecing Party at Quiet Play and to TGIFF at Quilt Matters. Also linking with Let's Get Acquainted.

  1. I think the squiggles look great with the bugs and bees on the fabric - I thought it was part of the fabric!

  9. Looks great! Your quilting is very nice too! I found out the same thing when I made a baby quilt with flannel that had many points.
