Love this quilt!  Do you know where I can get the pattern for a king size quilt?

The lovely quilt by Jeanine's 4 year old customer is a LeMoyn Star.  Sorry for the spelling.  Eleanore Burns did this star. The program for it should be on her website.  However, if memory serves me, for a 12 inch block, the star consists of  1 3/8 inch strips stitched together with the 1/4 inch seam.  The finished strips (3 of them) should measure to exactly 3 inches.  Then you cut the diamond on the 45 degree.  The corners and triangles are set in with Y-seams.  I don't remember off the top of my head the measurements for those.

Hope this helps!  Interestingly, I am in the middle on a LeMoyne star quilt myself, but not in the strip sets like this one.  I'm doing mine in half legnthwise, if that makes sense.  I think the strip set one would have been much simpler!  Not so many points to try to match up!!!

I'll try to post a pic of it if I ever get the time to finish it!

Ginny:

Jeanine, I love the creativity you put into your quilting.  The quilt is very nice-very masculine looking or very modern.  Your son is sure to love it.    Ginny

 

Thanks, Ginny.  I just fell in love with this fabric because it made me think of my very "urban" 30 yr old son.  He has not been talking to me for years but just over the last year or so has been making strides to repair the relationship.  I really want this quilt to show him how much I love him...no matter what.  Although, I am not getting my hopes up too much but it was better than a gift card (last year's Christmas gift I gave him.)

Jeanine, It is so good to hear that the son you had almost given up on is responding to you.  I think I said at the time that he eventually would. So glad to hear it has come to pass.  I'm sure he will really like your effort.   Ginny

Hi Ladies.  I'm not on here much, but I need your help!!  I have been given this very lovely and nicely pieced quilt top from QoV to quilt.  As you can see there are large panel of the statue of liberty and very nice star blocks.

I have NO IDEA how to quilt it!  I desperately need advice fast, as I need to get it done and sent out.  I've had it for about 6 weeks now.  I was delayed because of my gallbladder surgery.  I didn't expect it to keep me off my longarm for a few weeks, but it did.

  I'm loading it on the frame tonight!

Any adivce is Greatly appreciated!!!

Jeanine,

Your quilts are wonderful as usual!!  I know your son is going to love his black and white quilt. Striking!  Maybe you can post of picture of him with it later.  94 years old and still quilting! She made an absolutely beautiful blue quilt. It does look very wintery to me. Great quilting job on it.

Sometimes when a quilt stands on its own like this, a simple meander in a neutral thread would work fine.

Finished my quilt...  I am so excited to give it to him.  I quilted in their names and year in the border.  I also put a heart on the opposite border...I will know, at least, the "my" heart goes with quilt.  I used wool batting for the first time.  It is soft and drapes well.  I may need to use that again.

The backing is made from all the leftovers...

Hi Jeanine.  So you think a panto?  I know QoV doesn't like just plain meandering....maybe something with stars and loops?  And do you think I should just go over everything?  I'm completely stumped!

Jeanine, forgot to mention.  Your son's quilt it lovely.  It shows you took great care in everything about it.  I'm sure he'll love it!
