The White Star Quilt finished at 94 x 108.

Here are some photos taken during free style long arm quilting.  I call this stitch sequence Feathers and Swirls.

Above, I turned the lights off in the studio, and allowed daylight to show the colors and barely there contrast.

The light color scape is called Low Volume (trending now).  Online there are many articles written, and online stores selling the dickens out of low volume fabric collections.  

Trends come and go, but for the moment--I'm liking the results.  I will make a couple more "Low Volume" quilts and will let you know if they sell well at summer/fall shows, and comments. 

The White Star quilt took me longer than expected.  About 100 hours (3 weeks).  I thought it would never end.   Instead of dreaming about the next quilt while working on this one, my brain is 3 quilts ahead.  

Thanks for looking at my stuff.

Beautiful! I don't think you've done a quilt yet that I didn't love!

Was just thinking today that the quilt on my bed is too dark but didn't know what to replace it with. Will be looking up Low Volume fabrics now...thanks!

Light, airy, and elegant, and lovely quilting, as always.  I was so used to seeing darker, "manly" fabrics, and this one took me by surprise!

Another fantastic quilt! I really like this one. I wish I had more of the ability like you do for making so many different fabrics look so good together.

I love the lighter colors - and especially your photograph of the quilt on the bed - it really shows off the beauty for what it's meant to be!
