Christmas Star Trip - an official flimsie . . . . .

I put the last row of border blocks on about midnight last night.  Now we can count this as one in the win column!


This is the 5th Star Trip I have made.  I should say the 5th colorway I have made with this pattern.  I have made duplicates of the same colorways.  I used to teach this class so had lots of partial samples in different stages of doneness!


This quilt is very easy.  It is just 4 different nine-patches.  Above is one of them.  You have to be a little organized to put it together but the outcome is wonderful.  The pattern is called Star Trip by Jane Martin.  The pattern is over 10 years old.  Jane never did sell it through distributors but out of her house. 

When this one is quilted, I will show you all the ones I have made.  It won't be long.  I want this one finished by Christmas.  It's hung around long enough.

Blessings, Cathi
