My completed Ohio Star Quilt

It gives me great satisfaction to write that my Ohio Star Quilt is DONE! As I posted earlier this month, I’m participating in February’s One Monthly Goal Link-Up by Elm Street Quilts.

I made a block for each month of 2018 to celebrate my 10th anniversary of living in Ohio.

I don’t know what else to say about this quilt! I’m so happy it’s done. I wrote a lot about this quilt over the last year. Maybe I’m also happy that I’m not going to write about it anymore? I finished the quilt this month a lot sooner than I thought I would. That final knot in the binding is so satisfying. Stitching on the label? My favorite part. I love how the fabric and the batting and the stitches seem to settle into each other after a spin in the washer and dryer.

I machine-pieced the top and hand quilted it. I stitched in the ditch around each block, stitched around the outline of each star, and added outlines of Ohio in the sashing.

The little Ohio outlines are one of my favorite details. There’s no denying that this quilt is about Ohio!

Teeny hand-stitched Ohios! I love them!

Overall, I’m very happy with this quilt. There are a lot of personal stories in this quilt. I learned a lot and practiced new skills. Here’s to more years in Ohio and many, many more quilts!

Fresh from the dryer after being washed. See that crinkly goodness? And I pre-wash all of my fabric!
