January- finish it up month- challenge

I was catch up with blog reading when I came across the post on Nicolette's blog about the January finish it up month challenge. The idea came original from Kim and May Britt made a challenge out of it. (Go read all about it there!)
Well...and a challenge is maybe just the thing I need to get me going again! I haven't done any serious crafting lately. The idea of the challenge is to post a picture of your unfinished project before. And later a picture of the project after it is finished.

Oké, here is the before photo. It's a star quilt machine sewn and almost complete. It's a quilt I started in my early quilting years, measering 130cm by 130cm. For the back I used different blocks of fabric. I think this little star would look lovely on the couch.
So I'm gonna look for my hoop now and hope I can show you a picture again before February!

Wow, that looks wonderful! I have so much to learn about quilting. The quilting by hand has a pattern. With what material do you take over the drawing of the template?

Very pretty star quilt. Every time I see a Lone Star quilt I want to make one just like it :o)

Happy New Year Corry. I think your unfinished star quilt is beautiful. It is a great idea to finish things in January as it really is a 'nothing' month after all the excitement of Christmas and New year it takes a while to settle into something new.
Looking forward to seeing your finished quilt.
