STAR RISE IS DONE!!
Star Rise is finished!!
I used that leftover children's castle print that was so popular a few years ago
(I asked myself at the time:"Now, why did you buy this??--you'll NEVER use it!"
and it ended up Waaay in the back of my blue stash)--
and here, (amazing myself) I end up just LOVING how the people are all standing around the edges --watching the stars rise....;))) SWEET!!
I guess you just never know, and have to go with your gut....
the backing is just a couple of old, old fabrics...softened by time...
And, I ended up by tying this one..............................
with a light blue
No. 8 , a lovely
**and I am happy I put in these "Love" strips for contrast...
just a couple...
And so my Star Rise journey is over--even labelled it....;)))
Would I make this one again?
(Actually I do have a few leftover blocks that will become something)
Well, I certainly would make another string quilt--whether or not this pattern,
maybe not, although it was a challenge and fun!!
I truly enjoy this kind of work...I didn't use any batting as the blocks were all
sewn on light muslin....so it is not too heavy...
I am having a celebratory drinkie and patting myself on the back--
("and another one bites the dust..." yeah, yeah, yeah!!)
