Needlework Tuesday - The Stars are Shining

It's finished. Yes, I did a little happy dance, then got out the camera to try and take pictures. I do realise that some quilts are just too big to lay on the floor for photos. I would have taken it outside to hang up, but it was pouring rain out there.  Measures about 70 inches square.  I am planning to machine quilt feathers in those big open spaces.  This will be a huge challenge for me as I've only done feathers a few times, but with patience and practise before hand, I'll get it done, eventually.
To recap for new visitors, the large blocks were made during a year long BOM program at my local quilt shop.  The pattern is "Building Blocks" by Sharyn Craig and the setting for the quilt is "All in the Family Sampler" in Judy Martin's book Knockout Blocks and Sampler Quilts.

Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.

Did you work on needlework this past week, I'd love to see what you've been stitching.  Add a link to your current post by using Mr. Linky and i'll be sure come visit and leave a comment.

This week is the Canadian Quilters Connect Blogathon Canada.  Lots of fun sites to visit and even some contests to enter.  I have contest that I posted yesterday.  You are invited to enter by visiting that post.
