My Circle Star Quilt was inspired by the starting
of my Goldfish Quilt, (which is still in pieces!)
I took Victoria Findlay Wolfe's
Double Wedding Ring class last May up in Salem, MA.
As you know, I love taking a class.
Sewing in a group is tons of fun and inspiration!
Here are the start to all my archs.
I used the templates for her Bright Lights, Big City Pattern
from her Double Wedding Ring Book.
Then I started playing around with them and voila!
It is so important to let your mind just fool around with shapes
and colors. You never know what you'll find.
So I made this little lovely right on the spot!
I knew I was going to make this quilt,
but I set it aside for the other 15 projects I have going.
In September I came back to it.
For a very special couple of peeps that I love.
I hardly ever plan out a quilt, but I did this time.
It's so funny to actually have a pattern
and layout in mind. I never work this way.
Slowly I made my blocks. I think they are 19.5" unfinished here.
I've always wanted to try star sashing too,
so the more stars the merrier!
While hosting these two loons,
I finished all the sashing parts.
I love these two.
They always brighten my day!
Pieces up on the wall!
All the parts sewn together!
Layering on the conference room table at work.
And finally a show and tell yesterday at my guild meeting.
I am so pleased with this quilt.
The unexpected block design,
the colors and star sashing.
I couldn't be happier!
And I can't wait to deliver it at the end of the month.
