Flannel Carpenter's Star - Finished!

I just finished my largest quilt yet, measuring a finished 102 inches x 104 inches.   It is double batted with Hobbs Heirloom Premium Wool and a layer of Legacy Bamboo Blend Batting on the back.  The whole thing is flannel.  She's pretty heavy!  I expect it will be warm during cold winter nights.

And now for the binding.!  
I designed the quilt using Electric Quilt 7.  It's a simple pattern that shows off the quilting well and went together quickly.  The backing is a lovely tone-on-tone in grey, which I used in one of the borders then feathered around it to frame the inside medallion.  

I used Glide Cool Grey on both front and back.  Glide has become my 'Go To' for most of my quilting.  It's strong and doesn't cause a lot of dust or breakage during the stitch-out.  992,861 stitches in this baby and not one break! The quilt was finished using my Statler by Gammill combined with some ruler work.  The designs (and - of course - my inspiration) came from Bill Hibbett and Karen McTavish  (both from Legacy Quilting) and Christy Dillon from  I also used a Digitech Patterns from the Heart of my Heart collection in each of the corners, pulling together the outside borders.  
Reverse to show the detail.
I was pleased to get a bit of attention for this little project.  Thanks to Michelle and Andrew Weaver of Andrew's Sew and Vac in Wenatchee Washington for keeping my machine purring.  You are the best!
