Every once in a while a project comes along that just about takes all you've got. This one was that for me.Seattle Modern Quilt Guild in March, I heard about a star quilt challenge - something that had been in the planning for several months. The deadline was today. Ie. I was way behind from the get go. What seemed even remotely possible when I finally got around to starting was to take the Lucky Star blocks I had made so far (each 6 1/2") and pull them together into a small quilt.
I call it "Auspicious Sky", honoring those Lucky Stars that gave me inspiration in the first place. I surrounded them with a sky of Kaffe Fassett shot cotton accented with bits of Robert Kaufman Essex Yarn Dyed Denim and Kona Nightfall. Quilting was somewhat randomly spaced straight-line using several different blues, from midnight to royal.
apropos. And for binding, I used more of the Essex.
This finish was on my FAL Q2 list for 2013. Linking with Fabric Tuesday.
