The Top Is Now Finished

Needle Stars from Wellington Quilt Symposium 2009
Now I need some time to quilt it. I thoroughly enjoyed this class with Paula Nadelstern. We had to draw up the pattern, fussy cut it out (the border is the fabric I used), then piece and sew. Paula has a great way of sewing the little pieces together - you will have to attend one of her workshops to find out or get a hold of any one of her books! So with a fabric repeat of 4 inches (10cm) I have managed to get 9 different kaleidoscope blocks measuring 10 inches (25cm). The border idea came from Susan Claire - check out her website, she is one talented lady designing some lovely quilts - and has a wacky sense of humour to boot! Finished size is: 55 inches (140cm) square.
