My guild,  Eastern Long Island Quilters Guild, honored me by asking me to quilt the 2011 raffle quilt!  The pattern is Granny's Star by Nancy Mahoney, and was featured on the cover of the July/August 2009 issue of Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting.
This is just a sneak preview until the official photo is taken.  Lots of yo-yo's were sewn on by hand after I returned the quilted top to the guild.

Piano key quilting on all four sides in the center of the outer portion of the border

Ruler work, ribbon candy, and a freeform flower in the blocks and sashing, stippling in the border area not quilted with piano keys
