Ring Around the Lone Star - September's Lovely Finish

It seemed like a modest goal ... but still took some effort for me to complete it.  This 60-inch square quilt top now feels "done" and and ready to be quilted. Somehow the addition of those quirky feather-inspired leave shapes–that I know wouldn't have been everyone's choice–makes it more "me."

Ring Around the Lone Star

Along the way, this quilt now has a name, Ring Around the Lone Star.  It's my completed project for A Lovely Year of Finishes.  This project has helped me push myself even when I continue to have little or no inclination to quilt ...

There's so much I like about this quilt, from the log cabins used to set the lone star to the star flowers. Very good, Sophie.

Those leaf shapes are what drew my eye in this quilt - great addition! Congrats on getting it completed.

I see the feathery leaves and enjoy them, however when I look at the whole quilt from a distance the circle of stars with the blue streaks behind them look like starburst to me. So much movement! Love it!!
