Auntie's Quilt

 Just in the Nick of time...  (St. Nick, get it?)
Shipped off today for my Auntie's Christmas gift...
(I say, wiping the sweat from my brow....)


 I used all JENNIFER PAGANELLI prints on this quilt...  
The star is made completely from her new Queen Street collection...
You may recall I won a huge stack of fat quarters of it, and I used every bit of  it....

I also, broke into my secret JP stash for the setting squares, backing and binding...

 Now I think I can relax... 

Merry Christmas!


  1. Wow, what a lucky aunt to receive this masterpiece! I love the giant star pieced with such gorgeous fabrics. And your quilting around it looks amazing!

  2. Once again you make the quilt way more beautiful with your quilting--I am amazed still when I see what longarm and other quilters produce on a day to day basis; my hat (I always wear) doffs to you creative spirits. I am your Biggest Fan, thank you.

  3. You are Very kind, but note I donthave a long arm machine.... I have a home juki machine....
