It’s a Wrap: Scattered Stars

Finally! I got the label made today for my cheddar and indigo quilt, Scattered Stars, so I can officially declare it finished:

Here’s a look at the back:

Scattered Stars finished at 66″ x 88″.

For the label I made an inset circle and then enclosed it in another circle:

Here’s a close-up:

I tried arranging Scattered Stars artfully on a quilt ladder, with mixed results:

At least you get a good look at the beautiful quilting done by Karlee Sandell of SewInspired2Day.

The quilt motif is “Woven Wind,” a contemporary version of the classic Baptist Fan design.

Coco photobombed my quilt at every step in its construction so it seems only right that she should show up for the final reveal:

Thank you for following along on my quiltmaking journey!

    Its beautiful, Dawn. I respect your ability to make a traditional quilt stand out with your impeccable craftsmanship.

    And the cat almost matches.

    Awesome work! The colors are beautiful. How do you print your quilt label? – Mary

      Hi Mary. I created a label on my computer and then sent it through my inkjet printer using regular cotton fabric (quilter’s cotton) that had been bonded to fusible interfacing and trimmed to 8-1/2″ x 11″. I discovered this method quite by accident in May and wrote about it in this blog post: My method is described in quite a bit of detail but I still plan to do a proper tutorial for my website.

    Yet another stunning quilt. Congratulations on your creation and thank you for sharing your journey with all of us.

    I believe the reason that you were not delighted with the placement of the quilt on the ladder was it was missing your chief quilt inspector.

    Wow! This quilt is a perfect showcase of fabric selection, design, piecing and quilting. And, what triumph of yours would be complete without Coco, the ever so cute but inveterate scene stealer?

    Hope to be sleeping under this quilt on my next visit to the Portland White House. 😉
