I stayed up way too late last night putting the large rectangles up on the design wall with the stars for this quilt. Then after our walk this evening I sewed them to the stars. That went so fast that I sewed all the small rectangles together in pairs, got them pressed, and they’re all up on the design wall too.
This picture really doesn’t do these fabrics justice. But it gives you an idea of what this quilt will look like when it’s done. I still need to change a few things around, but it’s close to being ready to sew together.
Here’s a picture of all the large rectangles sewn to the star blocks.
By not sewing these into complete blocks first, I can add the smaller rectangle sets and then easily fix things I don’t like by moving the sets around, or even just flipping them over. Plus, I can flip the star block sets over as well. It gives me a lot of flexibility in making this look right to my eye.
This is really going to be a pretty quilt. I just love the way the fabrics all work together.
As I look at these photos I’m making mental notes of what needs to be tweaked. I hope I remember tomorrow night!
