Starlight Star Bright
On my design wall today: my Starlight Star Bright baby quilt. I loved playing with these bright fabrics. I think I could have chosen a slightly lighter color for the blue stars, but overall I’m happy with how this turned out.
Figuring out what size prairie point to insert after the inner border took a bit of trial and error. The original size I planned was way too large and floppy. The next size was too small. What you see here was something in between and think adds just enough dimension and color.
This needs to be quilted this week. The finished top has been waiting on the design wall for over a week as I waited for the quilt to speak up and tell me what to quilt on it. In the end I think it will be simple outline quilting inside and outside the stars, and a simple cable in the outer border. The prairie points will remain unquilted so they stay dimensional. Perhaps some alphabet in the stars, if I don’t run out of time and patience!
