I feel like a Star!




From the book " Gee's Bend Women and their quilts"


Can you believe I have never made a quilt with a star block?
Well, other than my very first quilt. But, that does not count. I see a very scrappy star quilt in my near future.

I do feel like a star! My "Zigzag" quilt was in the AQS show.. 



It was nice to see my quilt hanging there.. 
What was even nicer was the company of women I had the chance to hang out with!

Kelly Meanix from the Pinkadot Quilts and her friends are my new friends! 
Some of the nicest people I have had chance to meet in last couple of years.

I also got to meet some fabulous bloggers like Kathie from "Inspired by Antique Quilts", Victoria from "Silly Boo Dilly", Barb from " Quilting with Barb and Mary". 
Wish I had more time to chit chat with them!

I even tried my hand at a long-arm quilting machine!
Came home with inspirations and ideas that will keep me busy for quite some time!

  Happy Weekend!

  15. I just blogged about a star quilt. I am so scared of diamond patched star quilts that I made a triangle one instead. I think the Gee Bend quilts are fabulous, especially the bumps and uneven sides! My kind of quilt.

  22. You are a star!
    Your quilt looks amazing on those black backgrounds.
    Was wonderful to meet you.
    I wish we had an international label or button system so we could meet other bloggers more easily!
    Let's set a May date -
    how was the Indian Food received? My son and I love it - hope the girls did too!

  23. Oh my gosh, Sujata, I was so out of it with back pain I didn't even realize that you had a quilt in the show! (You should have told me!) It was lovely to finally meet you face to face, and I regret that I wasn't in better condition, as I would have loved to spend more time with you and to see your quilt up close! Congratulations, you are a star!
