Red Star for Judy! :)

. This quilt needs a name too . . any suggestions? I feel like I should be getting a gold star! Here's the log cabin star that I just finished quilting. I ended up just doing some little free form feather type designs instead of a stenciled design in the squares and triangles. I'm glad to have this one done. I'll add the binding tonight so while mom and dad are here, I'll sit and work on hand work. Here are a couple of pictures of the quilting in the triangles and border Our poor bunny . . Chad is wanting bunny gumbo! Yesterday I was out buying tomatoes and peppers and herbs. Chad wanted to plant grapes so he got four grapevines. Bunnies must like grapevines because they have all been stripped . . not a grapeleaf left to be found. I have some of that green meshy type material and we put it up but it the holes were big enough that bunny could get right through it so we need to buy the mesh with the smaller holes. Oh well, Chad probably wouldn't like home grown grapes anyway! :) Judy


  • Great job, Judy! I really like the colors and the pattern.

    Sorry about the log home -- terrible waste.

  • Judy,
    Is this one for YOU?????? I sure hope so! It's gorgeous! How about "Red Star at night, Sailor's Delight" Or "Red Star Delight"? I hate the naming process! LOL

  • Hi, Judy ! Your quilt is delightful ! I love it ! Now, about the name : I see it more brown than red, so what about :
    "Brown sugar star", or
    "Brown sugar cabin", or
    "Judy's lucky star"
    Will visit you often, I like your blog and your work.

  • While I don't have a name suggestion, I did want to comment that I love the series of borders you used. I never thought of using that block (Snail Trail?) as a border. Thx!

  • Gorgeous quilt and the border is awesome!

  • Snails Trail is also known as Virginia Reel (right?). If so, how about Reeling Star? Or Virginia Dance? Virginia Star Dance? Star Dance? Humm, I think I like Star Dance the best out of those choices - I love playing around with words. Good luck finding a name - it sure is a beauty!

  • I love the border on this! I've always wanted to use that block - I could start with a border!
