Maple Star Flimsy Finish

I've been cruising blog land and enjoying everyone's quilting projects!! So much inspiration and beauty out there. I have been working on several projects (all of which you have seen at least once - so I vowed not to post about "old" stuff!). I wanted to finish up a couple of them before I began on THE WEDDING QUILT! which I have begun to assemble the fabrics for it - sorry can't post about it until the finish - but if you really want to see it - I'll email you pictures - I don't mind if you are nosy interested in my projects! I love to share and get feedback - really!!

So, I did finish one project - the flimsy for the Maple Star Blocks!! I ended up going to the fabric store and choosing a totally different fabric than what I had shown earlier here, although I did use the yellow - just love that fabric, I am very, very satisfied with my choice and though this will packed away for a few months while I'm working on THE WEDDING QUILT,  my plans are to machine quilt it for a quilt for my bed this fall!

Blessings to Ya'll !!!!

The Maple Star flimsy is gorgeous! Really great choice for the alternate blocks and borders, too! Love it!

Very pretty finish, Doniene! Your fabric choices have created a beautiful "Autumn" quilt for your bed!
So, what is the plan as far as machine quilting goes? Are you taking a class or just using online tutorials, or what. Again, I remind you to allow yourself to be really bad at first, but consistent practice yields results sooner than you think! Make up lots of small practice sandwiches and don't get discouraged.
I'll get down off my soapbox now. : )

Beautiful! Your fabric selections and the border are a great finish to very pretty blocks.
Thank you for sharing!

You did good picking out the setting fabric. It's perfect!
Whenever you are ready to share a photo of the wedding quilt in process, I'd love to see it.

The warmth of those colors and the way you put them together just looks so inviting and it'll be a welcome addition to your bed come fall. Hope you're working on that wedding quilt! Put me on your e-mail list! I would love it if you would share your 'secret' progress.
