Post #100 and Quilt a Day #20

I realized this is post #100, finally! I don't have any cute ideas for a giveaway at this moment, I've been too busy with other things. I will have to think on this one!

My guild tied more quilts today, but didn't have as many people show up today and I had to leave and go do some 4-H judging for awhile. I think for the two days 8 quilts were tied so that was pretty good.

This quilt is called Star Struck and is a Jackie Robinson design. I didn't purchase the kit, but rather my own fabrics in similar colors because I love purple and green together. I don't like green on it's own but teamed with purple it's fabulous! It's very dimensional and weighs a lot and Sally Howard of Seattle did an awesome job on the quilting quilt a few years ago. I just didn't think I could handle the weight in my home machine and it's a very large quilt. It was fun, but time consuming to construct!

I guess it was time consuming. All those pieced borders. Making borders today was tedious and I only did one that was pieced. Thanks for sharing your quilts.

Beautiful quilt. And, I guess I have to agree with you. I love purple and green together. In fact, I am planning to dye some yarn those colors today!

I bet it was tedious! Holy Cow! That would probably make it into my UFO stack for "like forever dude!" :)
