Broken Star






My Broken Star is basted and ready to be quilted. It has been waiting for over a year like that. I was going to machine quilt it myself but I keep postponing it because it is so large (a king size) and I don't have a "long arm".  I will just have to find someone here in Luxembourg who does quilting for others.
Does anyone know of one?????
By the way, basteing was easy, I followed Sharon Schamber's technique which I found on her network.  Take a look at her network: sharonschambernetwork.com  on the left side you see a Free Area.
Thank you for stopping by

Oooooo this is fabulous. I've been avoiding these stars but yours turned out so well, I might have to try my luck....next year maybe. I'll be following your blog. You do nice work.

This is a beautiful quilt. I have never made a anything so large. What an accomplishment! I have been to Luxembourg, what a beautiful place.

looking back to your practice pieces I'd just do it yourself! The rust cover is BEAUTIFUL, take your time and it will be beautiful when done unless you really want to spend for professional.

I do hope that you find someone to quilt this beautiful quilt for you. Are you a member of a local quilt group? Perhaps they could recommend someone. You could also ask the nearest quilt shop, they should have a list of people who do longarm quilting locally.
I would encourage you to do it yourself, but a kingsize quilt is rather too unmanageable. Good luck in finding someone.
