I'm having a very productive retreat, finishing up projects this weekend. This star quilt is part of a paper pieced block of the month from a few years ago. Finally got the borders finished this weekend and it's ready for quilting

My current retreat is off to a productive start. I finished 2 quilts that I brought. This is one of them - a shop hop from a couple of years ago. I finally finished (most of) the blocks and came up with a layout I liked for the ones I had. Assembled the quilt and added borders at retreat, and one project is off the list.

Look what I finished today! Well, not quite finished, because it still needs 2 borders. But the piecing is done, the sections are together, and the quilt barely fits on my design wall :)
Everything went together really well, but this quilt certainly is good practice for sewing accuracy. I probably should have checked a few of the blocks before assembly, but everything seemed to work out in the end.

I quilted it with a freehand loop design. I wanted something quick and fun after a couple of weeks of steady customer work. I really like the way this quilt came out, but I think it's one of those "I did it once, not doing *that* again" projects.
