So I am suddenly springing a nearly finished (just needs binding) quilt on you! I didn’t post any process pictures of this one because I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it (submission, pattern, whatever).
I picked it up from the long arm quilter yesterday. This is one of those quilts that I loved as I was making it…then didn’t like it too much once it was finished. I do like it better now it’s quilted.
So why did it languish unfinished for so long? (I posted about starting it Here)
Why am I kind of iffy about it?
First of all, I love the Happy Go Lucky fabric (by Bonnie and Camille for Moda, spring 2013). I made this with a pre-cut honeycomb pack, and then cut some additional hexagons from some fat quarters.
I love the idea of making the hexagons into a star like this.
What I wish I had done differently: used a darker blue fabric for the outline strip around the star and/or skipped all that white! I wanted a clean look, but now I think it would be so much better (and more “me”) if I had bought some yardage of one of the prints and used that for the background.
Now that’s a good view: pretty colors! cute prints! great quilting!
This is growing on me, I think.
Perhaps I will work up a free pattern to post here on the blog or for my Newsletter subscribers.
Now to bind? white, aqua, darker color? hmmm.
