My StarFlower quilt is taking shape… finally.
I started making these blocks last year, and then sent fabric to my Bee group, who also made some blocks.
Yet again, I must apologise for these photos. I seem to be inspired at night, when I only have my iPhone handy *le sigh*.
I made a few more blocks and now have enough to put together a quilt.
The sashing is a white fabric with teeny-tiny black dots (I can’t resist a spot or a dot). I’ll take a better (closer) photo when it’s finished.
I think this will be the final layout. I just need to add the horizontal sashing and then decide on the outer border. Solid or a print? Decisions, decisions.
I’m still now sure how the quilt will turn out. I don’t have the big picture in my head yet. It is growing, slowly, and I’m determined to ONLY use fabrics in my stash. I have so much fabric and I really need to do something about reducing it.
When you make a quilt, do you have the final picture in mind? Or do you let it grow as you go?
Thank you to everyone who sent me an SMS, email, tweet, Facebook message or who I saw (IRL). I had a lovely birthday and ended the day celebrating with my family.
This was my DELICIOUS birthday cake.
A true blogger, takes a photo of their cake before they blow out the candles, right?
