From A - Halfway

After a few more hours of really satisfying hand sewing, I managed to finish my handpieced Sawtooth Star block.

Hand Pieced Sawtooth Star

I used Sweetwater's Grunge print in black for the cornerstones and one of the floral prints from Anna Maria Horner's Field Study line for the outside border. I really like how the semi-transparent polka-dots echo the Mirror Ball dots in the star points. I also like how the white background fabric (Lecien Whitewash) has subtle flowers in it which echo the poppies in the border print.

The finished block size is 20.5" x 20.5". I'm planning to turn it into a throw pillow for our bed.

Quilting My Star

After admiring it for a few days, I have finally taken the time to get this block basted and have started on the hand quilting. So far so good. Hopefully I'll have a finished pillow to snuggle up to soon!
