The stars on this quilt were hand embroidered by a technique called "chicken scratch".  I have had the quilt top done for more than four years.  A recent post asking about chicken scratch prompted me to dig mine out.  Once I had it out it made sense to get busy and quilt it.  I first found a scripture to embroider on the sashing... Proverbs 3:5-6.  That embroidery was done on my machine... not by hand.  The blocks are 16" square, and the quilt is about 80 x 100.  I contemplated putting a border on the sides to make it big enough for our bed, but I decided to finish it the way it is

It was because of all the comments on my previous post showing just a few blocks of the top... that I made the decision to get it done.  Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments.

Your quilt is beautiful. it drew my eye in the gallery, since I'm planning a multi-blue & cream quilt right now, partly with star blocks. And your embroidered lettering looks striking. You've inspired me!

I admire your attention to detail on the stars.  I admit I'm jealous.  Looks great.
