Kona Avocado and Stars!

So, this is a project I've been working on in between projects!  Ha what a joke, in between projects!  I'm always "in between" some project or another.  Anyway, this is from a pattern by Michelle Marvig which she did for Quilter's Companion. If you don't read Quilter's Companion, you should, it comes with a dvd in each issue that offers lessons on various aspects of quilting.  I am quilt nerdy enough that I actually watch the dvd's and learn a lot from them!  I don't often make quilts from a magazine pattern, but this one intrigued me because it is made by sewing strips together and then cut using a Kaleidoscope ruler (which I already had).  Now, the only thing is, what ever possessed me to use Kona avocado with my Carolyn Gavin fabrics?  I chose it because I thought the color went nicely with the fabrics and also because sometimes I just do strange things.  But seriously, avocado green, what was I thinking?  I will finish this quilt, but I'm not sure what I am going to do with it when I am done...

Nice job all your points are perfect! I have the ruler you are talking about too so I must try this soon.

Maybe the sashing will make it? :-) Love the star!
