This started as a quiltalong in (I hesitate to say it) 2011. I realize that is no sort of record, but it was a long time for me to wait for something I really liked and wanted to see finished.
And now it is.
Being sick has advantages. I can’t do much but sit and rest. And when I can’t sleep my hands need something to do.
It is scrappy, but controlled scrappy. I loved the backing/binding fabric when I saw it and I decided to coordinate the front to the back again. Sure enough, it worked! I loved the back, and I love the front. There are about 60 different fabrics, I think. Enough to give variety, but not chaos. Even though the blocks are stars, the color gives it a leaf feeling. Sort of tricky!
So, there you have it. A finished Oh My Stars quilt. I think it will be a quilt for my guest room, which I am working to rotate seasonally. So far I have three quilts–winter, summer and this one will be fall. Hmm…time to start thinking about spring?
