Star Log Cabin Quilts, and I thought it would look good in reds and greens. The sashing could be finished with gold stars and would add the finishing touch.
I spent a couple days fussy cutting the centers and strips for the blocks. I exhausted my supply of red and green scraps and actually had to cut about half of them from fabrics on my shelves.
Then I decided I needed to figure out the final arrangement before I continued because sashing is made up of two strips and you need to know what colors are in each piece. I tried out half a dozen arrangements before I finally settled on one.
In the final stages, I realized I didn't have enough of the border fabric that I really wanted to use, so I reluctantly ordered some more. On the bright side, the merchant I purchased from also had the poinsettia fabric I used for the centers with a white background, and I thought it would look nice in the center of the gold stars so I ordered a little bit of that fabric too.
Lovely! Wish I could help with the cutting. It's probably the only part I would enjoy doing. ;0DReplyDelete
Me too. You could cut out the quilts and I could sew them. =)Delete
