Anyway, it has been made for about two years now and I still haven’t got around to quilting it.
It is not that I don’t want to do it. It is because I am afraid I might mess it up. I need more experience and then I will go for it.
I think the blocks are called Ohio Star.
I decided to put a dark frame around to set off the stars, followed by a wide border. The thin lilac border will fall over the edge of the bed.
All of the fabrics are by Makower. The white is Essential Scrolls and the lilac and dark purple are Spraytime. I love working with Makower fabrics! Unfortunately, the photos don’t do the fabrics justice. The white one is particularly gorgeous .
I will definitely make other quilts with stars as I really enjoyed making these blocks. They are all 12 inches square.
Maybe next time, I’ll use batik fabrics. Who knows. Don’t watch this space for the quilted version for too long. It is definitely going to be a while before it gets done :-).
