Since fall will officially arrive here in a few days I thought it was time to put away these...
And start decorating with my quilts like this! Maybe getting the fall quilts out will help the temperatures to drop a little!
I've read much in the blog world lately about savoring the quilting process...it's definitely food for thought. As a new quilter I'm not sure I ever took the time to really enjoy quilting as an art, but more and more I find myself understanding a true appreciation for each step of the quilting process. I've been piecing these stars one star at a time--even though they would go together lots faster if I chain-pieced. I've just really enjoyed seeing them "come to life."
And I've had fun picking the perfect inner and outer ribbons to border them. The fabrics I'm using are Luna Notte' by Moda, and the pattern is "Rosettes" by Joanna Figueroa.
I have eight blocks finished...eight more to go. I'm not so sure about the outer black ribbon in the block on the lower right hand corner...I might have to change that out, but I'll wait until I've finished the rest of the blocks to decide.
And four blocks are now finished in the FatQuarterShop Designer Mystery Block of the Month...this month's tree block was designed by Heather Mulder Peterson...what a great quilt this is going to be! I've never been good at waiting each month for a block of the month to arrive...but this one is always well worth the wait! Have a terrific day!
