My entry in the Festival is Stargazing, a quilt I made this year using a fat bundle of French General's Rural Jardin line from Moda and the pattern Ginger Belle from Miss Rosie's Quilt Company. It is about 86" square.
The quilt design is basically a variation on the Irish Chain, but with a pieced star in what is usually the open block. There is a lot of piecing with this pattern, beginning with the four-patch blocks that are the basis of the larger blocks.
The process of making Stargazing was extremely satisfying because both the fabric and the pattern were lovely to work with. I was so happy with the finished flimsy. I sent that to Linda of The Quilted Pineapple to longarm quilt for me. I was blown away when I received the quilt back because Linda's quilting made a good quilt top so much better. Well, they all improve with quilting but quilting made this quilt! Linda quilted a wreath around each star and a simple design in the chain blocks.
It was my first time using flannel on the back of a quilt. Wow, does it make for a snuggly quilt!
Linda has even better photos of the quilting on her blog.
