New Pictures of Mrs.Star, a Queen Quilt in Annie's Farm Stand Fabrics

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


I took Mrs.Star off my living room wall in order to take pictures of my latest Queen 30s Barn Raising quilt.  I  didn't take any pictures of Mrs.Star on a bed before I hung her in the living room, so here are some fresh pictures of her.

Mrs.Star Queen Sized Quilt
She is pictured on a queen-sized waterbed which is longer and wider than a standard queen mattress, and thus, Mrs.Star will have a longer overhang on a regular mattress.

The backing is black with tiny white polka dots with a strip of half-square triangles down the middle.

The pillow shams are little quilts, complete with quilted fronts, a wide flange, and bound edges.  One has a row of half-square triangles down the sides, and the other has strips of patches.

Amazing! Your colours are lovely together and the matching pillows are such a good idea! It looks great - I'm going to have to do a big block quilt like this soon (ish) :)
