Scatty Stars! Sue's Christmas-a-long BOM has made the frame. Wow! When I put it that way this quilt shows nearly a year's worth of work. How about that? I'm still a little on the fence about how to quilt it, but the star border came to me as soon as I pinned the top to the other layers. Flash, stars! Oh the joy of being inspired. I just love the look of these stars along the top edge of the quilt and I wonder why I haven't seen them used in a border like this before? Maybe that will become clear to me while I work on the rest of the quilt.
This is the 3rd quilt to make my midarm quilt frame, I wonder how long I will keep track before I lose count. For the stars I kept everything the same including the tension. The flannel of this quilt really wants to grab so what would normally be only a bit tight seems to want to be extremely tight. This is an 80/20 lightweight batting which I think will be a wonderful weight for this baby quilt. The quilt I just finished was a hi loft full polyester so I was delighted the stars turned out so nice without any fiddling from me.
So while I dream of quilting patterns, why don't you tell me about your week? It's been a give an take week here. I'm glad it's September, August seemed to delight in throwing more and more difficult things my way and it's nice to move on. How about you?
