The eight point star quilt is one that I made after seeing a similar one in one of the Through the Needle magazine - not too sure which one. It is actually one of a pair - I thought I had made a mistake and rushed my DH out to get fabric for a second. This is the fabric I bought then. The original one I made is still unfinished - waiting to have the last of the blocks background quilted - everything else is finished. This one has been waiting a long time for the binding to be finished. I drafted the block up in EQ6 and I used strip piecing and added couching to embellish the seams. The quilting thread is actually a pink variegated thread but does show very light on the darker fabrics. All of the design quilting was stitched in the jumbo hoop on my 830.
