Trojan STar by unicornslave Trojan STar by unicornslave
I've now uploaded the completed quilt, no longer a WIP... for those who viewed/faved it as WIP, Red Red Rose, this is the same quilt, simply an updated photo.

The project was not only to complete the quilt, a challenge in terms of piecing, but also to use a whole bunch of reds that I received as a result of a fabric exchange. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

The compass and the nyb units are all paper pieced. (For the non-quilter's - nyb stands for 'new york beauty' - the units so named because of their resemblance to the statue of liberty's crown).

This quilt was started as a personal challenge, but also as a Bar Mitzvah gift for a young man who has been a USC fan since he was about 2yrs old... hence the red/gold theme and title.

Original design by Jacqueline de Jongg.

Quilt won 3rd place in traditional pieced quilts category at Road to California Quilt show, Jan 2009.

All the shapes at work here are very cool, and eye catching. I know nothing about quilting, as you know from our conversations, but I know what I like to see.

The flowing shapes of those round arcs, arranged in that touching-but-not-quite-connected pattern, makes for such an unusual shape.

I absolutely love the stars. THAT'S a star. ;)

Wow! This is such a captivating design... I could just keep staring at it. I love how all the half-circles come together to look as if they were one giant squiggle.

i can't believe i missed this... sorry about that. i'm definately deviantly-challenged :D but getting better at it every day :laughing:

isn't paper piecing the most wonderful thing :laughing: the way you have used the reds is brilliant, it could've been so overwhelming, but instead looks stunning.

have you decided how to quilt it yet??? what colour will you use for the binding?

I like the color scheme you used. It makes the pattern pop as well as slightly Old World.
