When I pieced this, I was intending it as a baby quilt (39" x 39"), with some quilting in the white areas, and something different in the blue.
But then I saw a quilt that had quilting in an on-point square, and thought, that would look awesome on this quilt!
Originally, I had stars planned in the blue areas, but brought those into the white, and into the on-point square.
The stippling around the stars help them pop. Here's a picture before I did all the backgound fills.
I could have stopped there, but the fills really help the design stand out.
The center and the corners repeat the line design, and the fills are repeated; stippling, pebbles, and McTavish. Thread color is a medium light blue, top and bottom.
The back is a plain blue flannel (remember, it was supposed to go to a baby!), and shows off the quilting!
This turned out so pretty, I'm keeping it for myself! I may make another, but with different quilting, of course!
A big project that delayed this quilt was my new 'connecting' icons, seen at the top right of my blog.
I spent the last two days working on taking this
Lots of trial and error since I'm not a programmer, but I did it, and even my engineer husband was impressed! And what started it all, was I wanted a 'pin it' hover button over the pictures that I post. So, go ahead, roll over a picture, and pin away! And feel free to 'connect' using my pretty new buttons!
