It is still cold, cloudy, and rainy so here's a burst of color for you.
This quilt is inspired by old string quilts.
I made this quilt top while at my retreat a few weeks ago. I used the same technique that I used to make this quilt and this one. The basic idea is to sew pieces together until there is a chunk large enough to cut the shape needed for the quilt design. For this quilt I started with a narrow strip of orange and added strips to either side until I could cut out a diamond piece for the star. When cutting the diamonds I made sure that the orange strip positioned the same in each one.
This was a good "use the fabrics" quilt. The sashing width was determined by the about of green fabric that I had. I also used all of that blue that I had for the background.
The binding is the same fabric as the ring in the stars. The back is a pretty purple print.
The quilt measures 42 inches by 42 inches. You can find it here.
