Easy Carpenter's Star

YYYYAY!  I finally did a Carpenter's Star!  I have been wanting to do one for so long but been too intimidated lol!  I found one on Quilter's Cache and LOVE IT!  I used one Layer Cake called Holiday Flourish and some red background fabric and VIOLA!  I actually did it!  SO excited! 


  1. I think you did such a great job! You did it all by yourself without a class too!

    Are you going to quilt it a little at a time, or how are you going about that?

  2. Thank you so much Tonya! You know I can't really claim that I'm "self-taught" b/c I learned everything from Jenny's tutes :) I don't think I could sit through a class, never good at those, I want to hurry up and get to the end coz I "get it" LOL! Anyways ...

    As for quilting ... my "plan" is to take a long-arm class or two offered in the area and after that, they let you rent time on their machines. At that point, hopefully, I'll get the hang of that part of it, too and get them all done at once then make another gigantic batch of tops ... or not ... LOL!
