Blazing Star Quilt made by Ruth (Craftsy 2017 Block of the Month)

'Blazing Star' quilt made by Ruth
Craftsy 2017 Block of the Month
It is hard to believe it was a week ago that the 2019 Festival of Quilts was in full swing.  One of the exhibits reminded me of this quilt which Fabadashery Longarm Quilting did for Ruth - Blazing Star, the 2017 Block of the Month quilt on Craftsy / Bluprint.  This little internet picture belies the true size of this quilt which was 96" x 96" and Ruth was wise enough to ask me to add the binding which saved her a battle on her sewing machine once it had been quilted.
The digital quilt pattern we chose was 'Birds Eye View' designed by Barbara Becker and we used a Glide Warm Grey 6 thread which matched the beige background fabric and carried well across the quilt on the front and the back, which you can see in the picture below.

This is one of my go-to patterns, especially if you don't want fancy flowers and swirls on a quilt.  I like its regular irregularity!
