I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this little quilt. It started out way back in March 2006 with a pile of batiks that weren't my favorites. I decided to 'get rid' of them by cutting them into 4.5" squares and 2" finished triangles. After sewing the triangle squares I started playing with the pieces on the design wall.The main stars in the long rows have 8 points alike on most of them. The secondary stars are formed between them with multicolor points. It is all made with 2 blocks, a square and a block made with 4 squares made of 2 triangles. It had to be laid out on a design wall to get the 8 matching points in the right place but was sewn as rows of 4.5" units, not as star blocks.
A portion of this quilt was my header photo for several years. I put on the triangle border in 2009 and now it is finally finished 10 years later. I had intended it to be a wallhanging but I decided not to sew a hanging sleeve on as I was attaching the binding like I usually do. If I add a sleeve it will be later since I want this to hang over the couch for awhile, maybe forever.
Yesterday was my 3333rd post since I started my blog in July 2007.
