I started quilting this quilt last week before we went on our road trip. When we got home from our July Forth GetTogether/Party at the lake, I was anxious to finish it up. The borders surprised me - It took most of the day yesterday to finish them.
This is a pattern Connie and I saw on a blog last year. I drew up a pattern that we call Arrow Star. My blocks were made on a 2.5" grid.The blocks are 14.5".(Connie used the 2" grid for hers.) With borders mine is about 68 x 84". I finished piecing it September.
I used a very simple meandering with stars for the quilting. I had purchased some Aurifil thread a while back and I loved quilting with it. There was very little lint compared to other threads.
