Pink Star Quilt

It is finally done! I started these star blocks last October, so at least I finished in under a year.

May 2017 Update: 

I finished this quilt nearly 7 years ago, and immediately after completing it, I wasn't happy with the back, which is why there is no photo in the post of the finished product. Once I quilted it, there were random lines of black and white thread running awkwardly through the big pink star. It looked awful. However, it required unquilting about a third of the quilt to fix it, so I put it off until this year and tackled it in stages. Once I broke it down into steps, it wasn't so bad, and now I'm so much happier with it!

  1. Did you create the pattern for the Lightning bolt? If so would you be willing to share it, or or where you found it? I really like it!

  2. I just posted the pattern:
