Random Ohio Stars--Finished!

I've been working on this one for a while, but thanks to the challenge from Jo of Jo's Country Junction, it is done. <applause>


I always loved looking at this pattern--it can be found on Bonnie Hunter's blog. Something about the combinations of sizes and fabrics really speaks to me.









Here are a few detail photos, including one of the borders and binding.


















I even pieced the back, using my trial blocks and some that lacked a sufficient contrast between fabrics.










Thanks so much Jo for the impetus to finish. Onward and upward!

  1. I love your pieced back. Those colors are so perfect together! Now I'm thinking I need to start a new quilt...

    1. Thanks, Michelle. I hated to throw the blocks in my orphan tub, so I just used them. I think I'll be doing that more often--it seems I always make too many blocks!

  2. I love Ohio stars too, simple but effective. I've started using extra blocks on the back too, I've already made three tops from orphan blocks so I don't need any more of those.

    1. Better to use them on the back than to let them sit! I've found that many people are surprised (and delighted) to find them back there. :)

  3. Your Ohio stars quilt is really pretty. I live in Ohio, and make a lot of stars quilts, but I don't think the Ohio Star yet. I love Bonnie Hunter's patterns. She is so generous and they are all so beautiful. I'm clapping for your wonderful finish.
