Texas Star Quilt

Texas Star
This is a quilt I made in 1990.  It is a queen size quilt, patched using the English paper piecing method.  The pattern is generally known as Texas Star.  It looks more like star-shaped flowers to me.

This is yet another scrap quilt, although I bought the yellow fabric for the diamonds between the stars.  The back of the quilt is a bed sheet.

This quilt is not quilted at all; as I mentioned in another post, I enjoy the piecing process more than quilting.  Instead, it is tied with yarn through the centers of the stars (although a few ties have come off; a certain kitty likes to play with them when this quilt is on my bed!), which makes it a tied quilt.

Anyone else prefers to tie a quilt rather than quilt it?
