Dolly Madison Star

I wish all a Happy New Year!!

One last finish for 2008. With this quilt I have made my goal of 12 with a few hours to spare even. I love this quilt it is so bright and cheery. And all from stash. Assorted printed muslin for the back grounds and assorted yellows for the stars. For the back I used up 2 odd pieces of muslin like fabrics I inherited from my mother. The light floral is part of a sheet. And the center gold fabric was a fabric I really like it went so well with the quilt I had to use it. But because I pieced it with other fabric I was able to save most of it.






The quilt is machine quilted and measures 72 x 72. It is made with 16 - 18" blocks I thought with only 16 blocks the quilt would go together fast. But it takes longer to make bigger blocks.

I love this quilt! So light and cheerful! Congrats on being ahead on the Stashbusting front. I'll have to figure out a way to keep track of my own, including the donations to the charity quilt projects. Happy New year!

I just found your blog and its lovely!

There is a group of us on the HGTV message boards for quilting and needlework that are encouraging each other to do this as well.

Awesome quilt!!! Great for any season. If you ever get tired of it, flip it and the back would make a beautiful tablecloth. Happy 2009.
