“My Sedona Star”

I did it, I finally did it. The “Sedona Star” from the TQS 2012 BOM is finally completed. It has been on my longarm quilting machine since May!
A View of the Whole Quilt:

The central star has nine points suggesting things to come. You can see the nine log cabin rays surrounding the central star in this picture, too:

The next round was nine appliqued rays with a dot at their outer most point:

The next round was composed of three each of the following three Mariner’s Compass stars(That makes nine in all.):

Then came a round composed of three each of three different folk art heart and feather appliques sections (Yes, that makes nine of these, too!):

Then came nine “embossed” sections. I used my own arrangement of the preceding applique shapes to outline quilt and then background fill to achieve the embossed effect:

Next came a ring of triangles quilted in the “continuous curve” technique”:

Then, more folk art applique to fill out the corners. I used “pebbles” and tiny feathers for the background fill here:

I used more “continuous curve” quilting in the final border:

I completed the top by using a two-colored “faux piped binding”:

Mitered binding corner:

Now, for views of the backing:

Isn’t she pretty?

    Your Sedona Star quilt is stunning! Thank you so much for sharing a variety of detailed photos, both over all and close up. I really appreciate also seeing the back side of the quilt. As a newbie to quilting, I feel that there is a lot to be learned from seeing the quilting from both sides.

    Truly regal. A canvas to be viewed by patrons of the arts. I still think it should be displayed from a ceiling, maybe hung by four corners below a mirror so the reverse side can be viewed at the same time. Thanks for posting Will revisit for inspiration and beauty.
