From the first time I saw this quilt pattern (by Emily Dennis of Quilty Love), it was instant love at first sight. Participating in the quilt-a-long, was the next logical decision.
The Expanding Stars quilt pattern was made as a present for two very dear people in my life, that will always be in my heart .
I chose to make one of the largest quilt sizes, which really made the quilting process very difficult.
The quilting process was particularly difficult in my home-sewing-machine, that has a small throat. So I chose to do the simplest quilting possible. Stitch-In-The-Ditch and a 5 inch distance between the stitched lines. And still it was really difficult to manage.
