Barbara's finished quilt

Barbara picked her quilt up today at
my favorite LQS, The Quilter's Path, 
so time to share some pictures.
Barbara's piecing is fantastic.
 I bought a set of Linda Hrcka's
curved rulers and used every one of them on this quilt.
Barbara fussy cut the center of her stars and borders, so I didn't want to cover up or take away from that.
See the center of the stars, I tried to duplicate that
motif in the quilting.
Barbara's daughter picked out the star and border
fabric and Barbara did a great job picking out the other fabrics.
Double batt, 100% cotton and 80/20 Hobbs.
Glide thread in Pickled Pear, light blue in borders.
All quilting is freehand and ruler work.
I'm trying to remember to take a before and after picture.
Soooo this is before....
this is after
Cool, right?
Thanks for stopping by and letting me share.
Who's going to Paducah???
Will be there on Wednesday. 
Anyone need pictures taken?
