As much as I love this quilt, I have to tell you: It is SO BORING to make 384 wonky star points, but even as I slogged through them all, I knew I'd make another one someday. I kept picturing black and white print stars with a bright colored background.
So Guess What I'm Making??
Yep! It's Time to Sparkle!
My one regret with the first quilt was the size, 60 x 72, I always wished it was a bit larger. When I started cutting this one out I briefly considered making more stars, but making MORE star points wasn't very appealing. Then I had the AH-HA moment! Make them LARGER! By increasing the size of the squares from 3.5 to 4 inches this quilt will grow to 70 x 84.
In January I started making a few star points here and there as I could find a little time for it.
The stack on the left are the finished units, a total of 160 star points so far.
The print stack in the center and the green stack on the right are pieces still waiting to be assembled.
The plastic bags hold the partial stars for the edges of the quilt; these units will have 3, 2 or just 1 star point. Keeping them separate so I don't confuse myself and go crazy later on! I am making 4 extra stars just in case I need to balance the colors when the stars are arranged before assembly.
My finished stack makes me so happy, but there's still have 244 to go! My plan is to just keep at them a bit at a time and hopefully have them finished before the year is out.
Can I do it? I sure hope so!!
Wish me luck, okay? And patience! LOL
The black and white prints are all from scraps and stash, a lot of them are Riley Blake prints.
The green solid is Michael Miller Cotton Couture in Limeade.
