While I was in Texas, drowning in paperwork, helping my mom, and being social, I did manage to stitch the binding onto the Made in Cherry Quilt I made last year during Sara's quilt along. Finished UFO #2!
Presenting Barn Star:
I tried to hang it in the barn, but Its too dark in there so a casual toss over the barn door is all you get:
Barn Star is 80" square and I am thrilled with the finished result! Jackie purchased a new barbed wire quilting design and it is perfect for this quilt Its a simple stipple with little barbed wire star looking points randomly stitched along the wire. That backing is a barbed wire print:
The backing is probably the oldest fabric from my stash. It was once a set of curtains in my home many moons ago:
I'm betting I've had it for about 15 years. I wasn't a quilter back then, but I used to sew for the kids a lot and now it has finally found it's permanent home.
I bound it with the black fabric from the King of the Ranch line. That seems to be my 'go to' print for bindings on these western quilts and I am going to be sad when it is gone.
I used 50 different prints in the star. Here are a few close ups of some of the prints:
I can't choose a favorite. I love them all:
After stitching this and my huge Western Scrappy Trips quilt, my box of western prints still won't close...and I have 2!
Now, how do I hang this thing on my wall?
