Antique 8-Pointed Star

Cindy bought this quilt top at an auction for $5!!  It is all hand-pieced and in fairly decent condition. What a bargain!  There were a few areas with some fraying but overall it's in pretty good shape.

I custom quilted these scoop-de-loops all over.  I figured out how to quilt the white areas all the way down without having any stops!  As for the stars- I could do 2 of them before I needed to reposition the machine, so quilting it went quicker than I thought it would. 

Such fun, bright fabrics.

These were a couple of my favorite prints--the cowboy and the elephant guy and snake charmer. 

And the back.  Hated sending this one back!
