Things that make you go hmmm ...
Started with an idea of many random wonky stars, no real pattern or sense. The quilt came together bit by bit, never a clear plan, just added a bit here and there ... whatever felt right at the time.
And somehow that took a very long time. There was always a little more to add, a little more to cut away, a little bit to move around.
The end result "is what it is". I'm not sure how I feel about this quilt. Were I to do it again I'd use a different color for the background solid and I'd quilt it differently - random stippling just doesn't make the statement this quilt deserves and I wish I'd gone with more of a blowing wind look.
I so love the fabrics. Oh my goodness, the multicolored floral just makes me swoon.
I have many more quilts in the works right now, and a head full of product ideas I can't wait to create and share. I'm excited to have been bitten by a creative bug (finally!) and have been keeping the sewing machine super busy ... next order of business may be finding out how to add more hours to the day - if I discover that I'll be sure to pass a tutorial along.
