NSW 2010 Quilt Challenge

It is done and in the mail. This is my 2010 challenge quilt. It is 16" by 24" and made with a challenge fabric that was provided by the quilters' guild of NSW in Sydney. It was mostly made with me Singer Featherweight. The challenge fabric is the dark one in the center of the 8 points star. The pattern is from Karen Doak's book 50 Fabulous stars. This one is the Tennessee star. I named it "Star'87" after a great Tennessean born in Nashville in 1987. I did reduce the star to fit the challenge size of the quilt. The original ones in the book finish at 12". These one are 8".
Now I am working on an inspiration by a French movie about Coco Channel. More to come.
