OK, then! Take that, you blue Starry, Starry Night quilt! I have been very anxious to get this all in one piece, and only have the three borders to go. I was kind of worried and anxious about this quilt, because I was running out of blues. Seems strange, huh...I sort my fabrics into color...the fabrics that are not 1930's or 1800's reproductions, or batiks...you know...just miscellaneous blues. So, I used every little piece I had that was not spoken for or in a sorted specialized bin. I was purposefully trying to use all these fabrics up in the blue drawer...and I did! I am glad they are all being used, as some are quite old. I even have a few blue squares leftover. Now I can relax and have fun making the borders!
To make this quilt, I started with 5 inch blue charm squares, and cut more blues from my stash. I used 2.5 inch x 5 inch sashing, and then used 1.5 inch connector corners to make the star points on the sashing. This is a big quilt...big enough for dear hubby to cover up his toes AND his nose!!
Thank you to everyone who is sending some pink fabric for the breast cancer project...I have started a box, and will add to it as fabrics arrive!! Could Mariebeers and Wilma and MarilynMckinnon write me back with an e-mail address, from last post? I seemed to get "no-reply" when I tried to e-mail you back...thank you!
Have a great day, all!!
