I've had this Star of David quilt done for a couple days now and I promised to post a picture of it so here you are. As I mentioned, I'm not sure how satisfied I am with this quilt. I mean, where do you put a Star of David quilt in your house? It is an odd size; that's what made it interesting for me to begin with, a hexagon quilt! It doesn't really hang flat unless all the points are pinned to the wall. It took me a long time to figure out what to do about the quilting. Machine for sure, but what? I started with invisible thread but then couldn't seen any quilting so changed to light blue which was almost white. I made a star in the center, stitched in the ditch around the star and feathered in the diamonds. I even got a few leaves in the border but they aren't so beautiful. Well, Patora likes it!
Can you tell what I'm doing with the hammer? Jane on sew create it had a post on this cute little craft and I'm not one to limit myself to quilting so I had to try it. Went to the craft store, bought some buttons to cover with fabric, hammered down the thing-a-ma-bob on the back side that you sew the thread through (this was a step I wasn't counting on. On Jane's website you could just pull out this wire on the back) covered the buttons, hot-bonded a thumbtack to the back and voila! one of a kind thumbtacks! So cute! I made a batch for myself, some for a friend and I'm planning to go back and get some more buttons so I can give them to other quilting friends! And as an exchange (that neither of us had planned) my friend gave me a pincushion that she had crocheted herself. So nice to have such generous friends!
