stars

Two different quilts with stars I am working on in parallel. Same theme, different technique and size. The above is all handsewing, handquilting, the one below is machine piecing and quilting. Star constellations are the inspiration for the choice of quilting. In both quilts I have used straight lines drawn by chalk pencil as the basis for the quilting. Still works i progress, both. I have posted about the handstitched blocks earlier.
I am sure this is not the end of my fascination of stars, love them....

Ok, normally, I'm not into stars, but after seeing what someone talented can do to stars, I may do something similar. great stuff.

I'm curious. After doing both hand work and machine work on this, which do you prefer? Do you feel differently when you are doing the same project by two different methods? Would love to know!!!

They are looking great. I especially love the crazy quilting on the second one.

Marit - they are truly wonderful. Amazing quilting and I love the idea of the lines.

Which do you prefer - hand or machine?

Congratulations on what is turning out to be a beautiful quilt.
