Sometimes we come up with a great idea. Like this one I had... Oh yes let's double a 50" pattern so we can have a star to cover my mother's entire bed! When your brain tells you this is a good idea, take a second and think about what a 100" star looks like. Okay well you don't really have to do that, instead you can try to look at mine. Taking a picture of this quilt is like trying to have a nice conversation with my in-laws. You think you've done it, you really do, but nope there's the zinger.
The 100" Star
I have added a video clip especially for my fellow Fall Festival Quilt Visitors so that you may see this giant beauty.
I made this quilt for my own mother two Christmas's ago. It has a prairie point binding and the pattern, before I jiggered with it was called Wintergraphix Star by In the Beginning Fabrics. It truly is 100" square designed for a Queen sized bed. Now this not so little wayward quilt has come home to me (all the good ones do) and I have learned it wants to be a KING sized quilt. I'm inclined to agree if only because this 16 point star could benefit from a bit of a drape down the sides thereby allowing the star line flat, shining on the top of the bed.
Tiny my Five year old Model
I am fully prepared to allow the prairie point binding to remain attached and visible in spite of the new 10" extensions. How will I do it? Well I guess you'll just have to check back in over the upcoming weeks to find out.
