MQG Madrona Road Challenge

I am so excited. I am finally done and was able to meet the challenge's deadline. Here's my Madrona Road wonky star wall hanging. It's already hanging in my foyer and I love it. Wasn't sure about the yellow background at first but it really grew on me! My guild chose a stars and stripes theme for the challenge so I pieced the wonky stars and quilted on the stripes. The stars are all nestled in with each other and I love the random order of it. 

This is my favorite star, i think because of the center fabric. 

Not sure if you can tell in the pics, but I played with the binding and made a few of the stars part of the binding. I really love this effect. It might be easier to see in the larger picture. I quilted with a 12 weight aurifil wool thread. It was a gorgeous variegated yellow. It looks really good in person and you can see the extra thick stitches opposed to normal cotton thread.

I have a few more finished projects to still post, it's been a very productive January!


  1. What an awesome job! There is just so much that I love about this quilt, well done!

  2. I love the effect of the blue stars on the yellow background, and what a clever idea to use the Aurifil wool thread to quilt your lucious quilt.


I love to hear from my readers......whatcha got for me?
