Weekly Finish #10: Batik Star Quilt

 

I FINALLY finished quilting and binding my daughter's Batik Star quilt. Yea!!


This quilt was 13 years in the making - my second oldest UFO. 


In 2008, DD was living in Texas when she made this quilt top.  When I visited her in 2009, she asked me to quilt it for her since it was so big and I had a quilting frame.  I gladly agreed as I was newly retired and brought it back to California with me.


I had never quilted a queen-size quilt so I put it aside as I dealt with other priorities.  But as the years flew by, the thought of finishing this quilt kept nagging at me.  It wasn't until 2013 that I ordered the black batting with the sincere intention of getting this quilt finished.  Well, the years kept flying by and before I knew it, we were celebrating the new year of 2021.


 Since DD would be visiting this year, I knew I had to get this finished before her visit.  Part of my procrastination was deciding how to quilt it but once I decided to do an overall design (fast and easy) with a light blue color thread, it was smooth sailing.  It took me 6 days - off and on - to quilt it and then 2 days to bind it.


 I used Quilters Dream Poly batting and the quilt measures 88" x 92".


My daughter has always loved horses and now lives in Kentucky where she is involved with the equestrian community. I think she'll love the backing with an allover print of wild horses.

It has been two years since I have seen my daughter and I am so excited to see her when she comes for her visit next week.  And I can't wait to give her this quilt!

Until next time ... be happy and keep on quilting!
