Blue Star Quilt
Nothing fancy today. Just a glimpse at my newest custom order.
I am doing up the star pattern I did for the spectacular star baby quilt but this time in all blues. My sweet customer is expecting a little baby soon and had been stashing away these fabulous fabrics.
I finished the top yesterday and am off to find some matching thread today. We are doing the back in one of the dark blue prints.
Here's the star when I was trying to decide the best layout. I get all fussy about making sure the values are all spaced nicely and that I make sure I don't have all the small prints next to each other etc. Layout is probably the one area that I spend way too much time on but I can't stand when I finish a quilt and then see 2 of the same blocks or prints too close to each other.
Today was the first day of school for my 3 kids so it is taking me a little bit to adjust to the new routine and the silence of the house again. Although, the dog got into some garbage last night and there is nothing like the sound of an old dog belching and farting to break up the silence:).
