Mini Star Quilt Finish

A short post to say hello and show you a little mini quilt finish.  I recently dug through my unfinished projects cabinet and found an old test block that I had started to hand quilt.  Are you ready for how long ago I started this?  The text block was in 2012 and I started hand quilting it as part of my 2013 Fat Quarterly Retreat classes.  Goodness how time flies.  Anyway, it was tucked away and I completely forgot about it.  


So I brought it along with me for a weekend of camping.  There I finished hand stitching it and hand stitched the binding onto the back.  I washed it when we got home and it kind of warped a bit (upper left corner).  I think I'll give it a press (can you press out wonkiness?) and will pop it up on the sewing room wall.  Happy happy happy little finish!

I like your little star quilt's wonkiness. Isn't it the best feeling to get those old, nearly forgotten projects finished.

Beautiful Wall Art! Jxo

I love it. A press might change it a bit, or wash it again and block it (pull it into shape) while it is a bit wet and let it dry back to shape.

It's gorgeous! If ironing doesn't get rid of enough of the wonk, try blocking it!
