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!


  1. Beautiful bright fabrics, and right down your alley too! If you do use that pattern, it will be a fabulous quilt! ---"Love"---

  2. Pretty fabrics...I would be tempted too. Looking forward to seeing the baby quilt!

  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...)
