Beverly's Hunter's Star

Beverly's purple and yellow Hunter's Star was a king size! I was not looking forward to clearing the kitchen floor to pin it, so my friend Gina offered to thread baste it on her longarm. Am I drooling yet? It took a fraction of the time. I only wish I could have quilted it on the frame as well:)

I had to alternate between purple and yellow thread, which makes quilting with a domestic machine a little more challenging, especially with a quilt this size. The trick is to keep everything smooth, so it doesn't bunch up when you get close to the stitching of the color that you have already used.

Thanks Beverly!
