Valuable Photo !!!


"Woman sells photo of many George Washingtons for $1,000,000"!!! (Or is that John Hancock?) Ha, I could buy more quilting stuff!

Hope this is our last spring snowfall! We had a lot of blowing snow, most of going towards Iowa.

There have been several gals making Bonnie's "Star Struck" and I realized mine has not been posted when quilted, so voila, here it is. I used stash, including the back, and made full use of the little triangles that many consider waste. I still have a bunch of tiny red HST all ready for another project. I DID have to make more of the blue HST to go all around the quilt. And yes, it's laying out on the snow.


Here is the back.

Oh I feel this photo is just for me. *big grin* I remember asking you if you would ever put a quilt out in the snow and take a photo, and you said "I would do that." (this was in reference to another blog where someone had done that.)

I just love your quilts, your skills, your stash, your tools, you.

Have a good weekend. Our snow should be all melted soon!

That is SO pretty! Even tho I know most of the HST were made from leftovers...I still am amazed at how many there are! Did you count? My head is spinning! (sorry..bad play on words!)

Elaine,
I love the variety of lights you used--they show up well when I click the quilt.
I also love your use of the tiny triangles. What a beautiful job.

Just beautiful! And the snow makes a very nice backdrop. Is that machine quilted on a domestic? I'm still mulling over the possibilities (or impossibilities) of machine quilting.

Your quilt is gorgeous. OUr snow is mostly gone now and I am hoping it's gone for the year, even though it makes a beautiful backdrop for a quilt.

Beautiful - I love how you used the little triangle squaqres for a sawtooth bordeer. I wouldn't have thought of doing that. The snow makes a perfect backdrop - though I'm sure you are completely sick of it by now.

The quilt is beautiful, and the snow makes the perfect background!

The quilting looks great...as does the quilt itself!

What an exceptionally pretty quilt Elaine! I just love it, including the insanity of that border...LOL
You are a triangle mania person!
The quilting is beautiful as is he picture. Hugs, FInn

Your quilt just turned out wonderfully! I love your "throwaway" border, it just added so much to the quilt!

Love your quilt! Another terrific finish for you. Thanks for sharing.

I love all types of star quilts and yours is a beauty. Our snow is all gone but the cold weather is lingering. I'm torn between garden clean-up chores & busting more of my stash in my cozy sewing room. Sewing is winning so far. My pile of flimsys is growing!
