Carpenter's Star finished just in time for online feather class...

Just got my Carpenter's Star quilt top finished in time for Judy Laquidara's F R E E online feather class which begins June 1, 2012.  I used Old Glory gold/red/blue fabrics on this Carpenter's Star, so I think I'm going to name it Carpenter's Old Glory in honor of my Dad, who was a master Carpenter (in addition to many other things ;-) and my dear FIL who was a WWII Veteran.  Turned out pretty good, don't you think?:

Old Glory gold fabric used for center star and borders

UPDATE 7/7/2013:  want to see this Carpenter's Star all quilted out?  Follow this link to see the finish:

Also finished up the B'day quilt and got the label embroidered and sewn on:

All ready to be wrapped!

This is 'finish up' week - I have 3 more quilts that need binding, two quilts that need a few more embroidery blocks to be complete and one applique baby quilt that really needs some attention soooo... like I always say, time to get back to it....

Catch up with ya later,


  1. Love the Carpenter's Star quilt - I could sure use some help on feathers - I may have to 'sit in' on this class!!

  2. The more the merrier, would love to have you! We have several who will be 'sitting in', so you'll be in fine company - hope to see you there, bring a friend or two...;-)
