STRING STAR

It is Easter and beautiful weather outside, ground enough to show a cheerful quilt. This quilt was made some time ago (8 years) and it is from the same book as the last one (the scrappy blocks) I showed. The book is called Quick quilts from the heart by Liz Porter and Marianne Fons.
This quilt has been hanging in our living room for a long time and although it doesn´t get direct light from the sun, some of the fabrics are getting quite pale. The quilt is machine sewed, hand appliqué with a buttonhole stitch and hand quilted. I was childless then and had a lot of time!

I wish you all a happy Easter and for the ones who are allowed to, a lot of chocolate goodies!
