There’s just something so appealing about…………

Star themed quilts…..what do you think? They can be done with a more traditional look but adapt so well to a more modern setting. “Martha Washington Star” (see here) seems to have the comfy cozy more traditional “feel”. IMG_1372 The fun stitching has begun. The center pinwheels will be left unquilted so they “pop”. I’m thinking I may add a bit of interest to the star, yet. “Swirls” will define the pinwheels nicely. The rest of the background will be a “vine” pattern (inspiration taken from the fabric itself!). IMG_1394 The pinwheels, stars and flower appliques have been outlined….. IMG_1393 More stitching ahead…………
