Bloggers' Quilt Festival Fall 2011

Hi everyone,

Amy is hosting the Bloggers' Quilt Festival again. 
I'm a little late joining, but it ends on November 4th.
So, I'm joining just under the wire.

My entry for the festival is my Carpenter Star quilt.

I made this queen size quilt for my youngest brothers wedding gift.
I drew up the pattern on graph paper.
I cut out all the pieces with my GO! Cutter, and the 6 1/2 inch hst die and 6 1/2 inch square die.
I really enjoyed making this quilt.
My brother and his wife just loved it.
I quilted it myself on my 30 year old Kenmore sewing machine.
Here another picture.

I hope you like it!
Make sure you go check out all the other quilts in the festival.

What a lovely quilt! I wonder if that can be made with a jelly roll? I have a few I need to find uses for. :) I am following your blog, now, too!
