Wonky Stars In Stripes (front)
This will be a Christmas present for my step-daughter Megan. Purple, being her favorite color, was the inspiration. I hand dyed Kona white in several shades of purple. Initially, I wasn't to happy with the outcome. Then I showed it to her and told her I was going to try to over-dye it and fix it. Her response was,"DON'T TOUCH IT! I LOVE IT!" OhhhKayyyy!
I decided on the wonky stars because they just looked fun to do. And after Elizabeth Hartman's Creative Quilt Backs, a FREE Craftsy class, I knew it would be the perfect way to use up the rest of the purple dyed fabric.
Here is a close up of the quilting. I thought this design was perfect for the stars. I based it on Elizabeth Hartman's Pointy Meander and Leah Day's Zippling. I think I met somewhere in between;)
I finished adding the binding this afternoon, crossing one name off my Christmas list, and just in the nick of time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival. This is such a fun event. Maybe NOW, I will have time to view all of the lovely quilt entries!
