Christmas Star

Here's my November Priority: Alzheimer's mini quilt for the Quilt-a-Month Club.


Christmas Star (AAQI #8827) measures 8.5" square. 


In the center of the wonky star is a little free-pieced Christmas tree.  The Kate Spain Flurry fabrics were part of the FTLOS swap package received from partner Jessica.  


The backing is a fun candy cane print from my stash.

Christmas Star is virtually headed to {Sew} Modern Monday and physically headed to AAQI headquarters to join hundreds of other art quilts up for sale or auction to raise funds for Alzheimer's research.  

Finished with your Christmas shopping?  No, you say.  Well, on this Cyber Monday, why not check out the plethora of lovely quilts on the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative site.  You are sure to find the perfect gift for that special someone on your list, and for those hard to please hard to shop for loved ones, gift cards are now available!

Happy Shopping!

  6. That's so pretty! I'm making a quilt with a bunch of wonky stars, and I find making them is a lot of work, but I love the outcome!

    Also, that candy cane print on the back is just lovely!!
