Stars over Sweden

On Tuesday Oklahoma received 12 inches of snow. For us, who rarely receive snow, this is a big deal. So guess what? I had an excuse to stay in and finish my Star Crazy Quilt...woohoo!! 

During 2010 I was part of an on-line quilt group with ladies from all over the globe.  We were each making this quilt.  During the year I formed a friendship with Elisabeth who lives in Sweden.  In honor of my new found friend I am calling this quilt "Stars over Sweden".   It is the first quilt I have made that I have named. 

Here it is laying on the queen size bed in our guest room. I am going to hire someone to machine quilt it. The quilt will end up on this bed. I will be redecorating the room, painting the walls, new curtains, new bed skirt, etc using this quilt as my design inspiration.

Until next time,
