Just a quick post to update this past month's sew-along. The theme was 'stars'. My quilt was asking for a dark background, so the stars are on a navy and blue mini-print. I don't usually use these bright colors, but the center basket was an orphan block from a quilt challenge to use these particular colors and work out of my usual comfort zone. Turns out I loved that quilt, and I'm loving this one too.
The stars aren't sewn on yet, but Labor Day weekend and the Minnesota State Fair are upon us, and it's crazy busy around here. You get the idea though.
Looks like the next (and last) theme is 'something fishy.' I browsed through my quilt patterns last night for an idea. I have a free download of "Something's Fishy" from Maywood Studio. The fish blocks are on point, and will be just the thing to use for the four corners to turn this quilt back into a square quilt. Serendipity! I'll have to start searching the stash for fabrics.
So much fun to see how all the other quilts are turning out. Every one a unique artistic creation. No two alike! Love every one of them.
