Anne’s Glacier Star

I had a surprisingly productive Sunday and managed to finish up Anne’s Glacier Star quilt.IMG_0708-0

Rocky went to the football game, so I had the afternoon to myself and really got some stuff done. It which mostly just showed me how much I could get done if I put more effort into it.

But whatever, naps are important too.

I won’t lie to you guys, I think Judy Niemeyer/Quiltworx Patterns are awesome… but most of them aren’t my favourite to quilt. There is just so much going on, I find it hard to get my groove. I don’t always feel like I’m doing anything particularly interesting or new on them.

This centre… I originally wanted it to look like this picture (above), but when I took it off the frame, I found that it stood out TOO much. It puffed up more than I expected, and was distracting from the piecing in the quilt. So I had a momentary panic, what on earth am I going to do now, and then finally went with adding another ring to flatten things out a bit.

Which worked just fine I think. So panic averted. It was the first time I have re-loaded a quilt after it was trimmed and “finished”. So, at least now I can say I for sure know how to do that.

  1. Love your quilting!! Gee, I thought everyone put quilts back on the frame after they were bound!! I even had to do it with a round wall hanging – that was tricky!! Well done and the quilting fits the beauty of the piecing!

  2. Your quilting (as always) is on point but that piecing is just insane. What great work. Investing in custom quilting for that beauty was a wise choice.
