Got so excited about finishing off one of the items on my 4th quarter goal list that I skipped down to the bottom of the goals, where it said "Start something I am *excited* about" (aka do something for ME). And that insistent ME person wouldn't quiet down until I cut into yardage from the fabric hoard (or is that horde? Helpful grammar hint: If you have a hoard of something, a horde of people might try to take it from you.) This quilt is being made entirely from long-time stashed fabrics--some approaching the 20-year vintage.
I used the no-waste flying geese method to make the center star points. This method not only saves fabric (especially compared to the folded-corner method I often use), but ensured that my directional background fabric would automatically sort itself out. The background stripes line up pretty good!
|Center Star: approx 36"|
The Outer Star is a Hawaiian print, bordered by your basic leopard (just to give it more presence). Yep: LOUD.
So... I'm off on the new flight of fancy. The link-up for the Bright Sky Quilt Along runs until Sunday. Any possibility I could finish this top by then? I highly doubt it, but stranger things have happened.
