Friendship Stars #2

I have a client named Mary that like Friendship Stars. She made a Friendship Star quilt a couple months ago but the fabrics blended too much and she like the way the star points showed. I used lots of line work on that one.
So she carefully chose the fabric for Friendship Star #2 and told me that she wants to see the stars point and no line work. Hmmm, OK. Mary has always know what she wants in her quilts.
So I gave her three options with three different prices. She chose the wispy feathers with CC and stipple. I used a feather spine with pearls from Compuquilter Designs The rest is freehand.

I also learned a new border treatment from Laura Farnham that I wanted to try on this wwide border. I think it would have looked better on a solid border but I had to try it. It involved standing a triangle on its long edge facing each other and then adding piano keys to fill what's left of the triangle. She was happy with how it turned out.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
