Our Creative Space

The Wonky Star throw is finally coming together.  Despite the fact that hand quilting is a very slow process for me (probably because I am not using the right technique), I am really happy with the effect on the reverse side:

It's quite tricky getting the stitches even and I do spend a lot of time pulling stitches out and looking at the reverse side as that is where the real effect of the hand quilting is supposed to be seen.  Maybe if I used the "rocking" technique it would make my life easier.  Perhaps there is something to be said for machine quilting.

For more creative stuff, head over here.


  1. Your "creative space " makes me want do craft a quilt again after a long pause! For I loved to make these stars!
    The handquilting looks great!
    Much success with the ongoing process,

  2. Thanks Viktoria. It has been a lot of fun to make.

  3. I love your stars, and the way you've used the red quilting as part of the overall pattern.
