Lap Quilt, Size: 107 x 107cm (or 42 x 42inches)
I pieced together 9 blocks of stars to complete the patchwork quilt top.
The star block design is from the "Encyclopedia Of Pieced Quilt Patterns" by Barbara Brackman. It's called "Patch As Patch Can" under Four Patch pattern category. I quilted the blocks by using straight lines to highlight the shape of the stars. I used a walking foot, a type of presser foot that moves the quilt forward from the top in synchrony with the feed dog.

With a heavy quilt, I got lots of wobbly lines particularly when changing directions. For the borders, I decided to do free motion quilting by adding "Ribbon Candy Curl" design.
