I just finished quilting two carpenter star quilts for two different clients. They were almost exactly alike -- but that's only natural since my clients are good friends and made these together! They were fun to quilt -- the ladies wanted feathers, and I love to quilt feathers!
I quilted curly "c" feathers in the borders. They show up better on the back:
I did cc (continuous curve) in the half square triangles and feathers in the white spaces:
Here's the second one in progress. You can see the stars created by the cc reflected in the mirror. I love the way these turned out!
