Sidetracked

Today I made a decision about how to quilt Seeing Stars. Of course inspiration struck as I started a different project!  I did draw out my design on a photo of the quilt so I wouldn’t forget before I get around to actually quilting it.

The new project does have a deadline, so I’m putting it first.  Plus it involves these fabrics, and you know I have trouble resisting brights.

From the left you see the backing, the borders, the background and the stars.  Back in September 2010 I played with this idea in a doll sized quilt with the intention of making a larger quilt all in blues if it worked.

I liked how it turned out but I never got around to doing anything else with the idea.  This weekend I was asked to make a baby quilt and I decided this might be the time to try out the design again.  I have a fun border planned for it too.  We’ll see how it turns out!

  3. Oooohhh pretty fabrics! I look forward to seeing how you apply those in the quilt. I have no doubt whatever you do will be gorgeous, but it's fun to see the process (when I'm not too busy being a slacker blogger/blog reader...)
