2 of 8 Radiant Glow Arcs for Lone Star

Slowly, seems to be the word that best describes the Lone Star Quilt.  Tuesday and Wednesday were good days and I got one glow arc done on each of those days.  They are taking over four hours a piece!  So steady I go.  I just started on the third arc.  With the quilt layout I'm using I'll be needing 8 of these.   Now I do have my first sample arc, before I changed the white on white fabric they are made from.  Not sure what I'll be doing with that little odd ball, a pillow perhaps?  Time will tell.

A darling neighbor, who is my one and only client for occasional alterations, asked me if this is a quilt on contract.  Wouldn't that have been nice!!!

Have you been up to anything good?  I'd love to hear of anything that doesn't involve 32+ hours of paper piecing!

They may take a long time, but they look wonderful. I'm still debating (designing???) my inset squares. I have discarded my stupid idea of applique, but am not sure what I'll do instead.

They look perfect. Maybe the neighbor will want to buy the quilt when it's done, but I'm not sure I would be able to let it go if I were you.

I love the arcs, I am so scared of traditional sewing of curves!

The purple hand dyed fabric looks so vibrant against the white. This will make a stunning addition to the Lone Star.
