I wanted to share with you some of the finished Star Crazy quilts that have been posted recently over on Star Crazy Log.
After working together for the last 12 months, a finish requires a big celebration!
It's only January, and many more participants are still working away, but I wanted to acknowledge the accomplishments of these talented ladies.
The very first to finish Star Crazy was Felicity, from Utah. Would you believe she figured out Sue Garman's pattern way ahead of the release dates for each Block of The Month, and had her top completed in July?
Beautiful job Felicity!
Merete, from Norway added an International perspective in the making Star Crazy. One of the delights of hosting this group was getting to know so many people from all over the world.
Merete was so good about posting her progress, and was an important contributor to Star Crazy Log.
This is the largest quilt she has made so far, and in order to get a picture of the entire quilt, she had her sweet daughters help with the hanging out the windows. Great photo shoot idea!
Karen (Karenfae) from Arkansas gets the AWARD for persistence in overcoming obstacles to finish Star Crazy in a timely manner.
At Christmas time Karen was injured in a car accident when she was hit by an uninsured teenage driver.
Through the pain and recovery of healing, Karen found a way to continue work on Star Crazy. This is a great example of how therapeutic it is to quilt, and the wonderful support offered through fellow quilters.
Thank you Karen, for your giving nature and for sharing with us along the way.
Deanna from Utah named her quilt "Granny Went Crazy". I love the autumn colors Deanna chose from her scrap bags to make this quilt!
Look how wonderful Star Crazy turned out in oranges, browns and greens. Notice how she chose various backgrounds for each block, and then a consistent color for the Irish Chains. Deanna really mixed things up, and it turned out so well.
I love seeing how quilts turn out in different color ways, and Deanna led our group in visualizing a new approach to Star Crazy.
Great job ladies! Thank you, and congratulations again on a finish!
