Lucky Stars

Time for a little quilting! I've only had this quilt cut and ready to sew together for 3 years now? What on earth was I waiting for? I finally dug it out, well rediscovered it actually, when cleaning up my quilting/craft area. This pattern os called 'Lucky Stars' and is from one of the first quilting classes I took several years ago. It called for buying fat quarters and when I put them all together, I realized I had too many different colours, so I drew out the earthy tones to put them together, which left all the blues and purples to be put aside. So that left pretty much enough to make 2 single size quilts. The earthy tone one was finished ages ago and has been gracing our guest bed ever since. And this poor blue-purple one in pieces has been sitting in a bag getting dusty ever since.

The last 2 weeks I've been sitting at the sewing machine on and off and now its finally all assembled. And isn't it pretty! I absolutely love batiks, they have to be one of my favourite fabrics to sew with. I don't think I have a favourite colour - they are all so gorgeous.

And now for the actual quilting part, I haven't decided how to machine quilt it yet. And as for the leftovers, I think I have enough to make a baby sized quilt. It will certainly be bright and colourful.

The quilt is just gorgeous! Quilting, unfortunately, is something that I haven't gotten around to...maybe someday.
