Five More Stars To Go

I’ve been working on more stars, but feel like I’ve been pretty relaxed about it. I haven’t been attacking them feverishly.

And yet, I have 15 of 20 done. And I’m really happy with them! I just love the variation in color and those big prints are so much fun when they’re cut down!

Five more stars to make, then I need to square them all up, and then I’ll start getting it all on the design wall. I can’t wait to see all those rectangles up with the stars. It’s really going to come alive.

I just love making these stars because each one is so individual. Each star point differs from the other star points on that block. And I love the combos of the blocks and points… really some gorgeous stuff going on here.

And, or course, that background fabric is pretty magical. So many people have asked me what it is and where they can get it. I wish I was more help. I do know that if I ever see it in a store again I will buy all of it!!! I have another three yards of it and will save it for something really special.

Holy cow! Look at all the color!

More eye candy.

I just love the pops of lighter blue, the oranges with contrasting blue, the pops of green in the Antwerp flowers…

I was a little ambivalent about the yellow geodes, but I think it’s brilliant in this quilt! It’s really a stand out. It gives a pop of yellow and big pops of green, yellow and purple. Love it!

Rico had his weekly sheep herding lesson yesterday and he was so amazing. We worked on turning the sheep around the post and then we did a lot of getting them into a pen. He was so good… so relaxed… so responsive! I just love watching a dog do what they’re bred to do!

After our lesson we went for a nice walk on the trails on the Washington State University campus. It’s been a few weeks since we did that. It was nice to be out in the trees and off the pavement.

Today, I’m hoping to go and visit a friend’s litter of seven week old border collie puppies. Sounds like a great Sunday activity!

    1. I just googled that fabric. This is not the same fabric. Mine is definitely a batik. Really high thread count. No selvedge. Pattern is random and not repeated. But you may get a similar effect using the confetti.

    1. Not sure there’s much trick with these points. They are floating points, which means that there will be space between the point and the seam at the top of the block, so you don’t have to have crazy precision once you sew the next row of fabrics on. These aren’t sewn together yet… just sitting on the design wall. There is more to come!

  1. What a gorgeous quilt this will be. You’re still planning to add the rectangles aren’t you? It will add another whole dimension. Any thoughts about binding yet? If I can find the right background fabric I would like to make a 9-patch wall quilt with Kaffes from this pattern.
