Stars Slightly Askew.







Ok, so I'm kind of laughing here as I post these photos.  I finished sewing this quilt together this afternoon and as I had it on the floor I showed it to my husband to see what he thought of it.  Of course I knew he wasn't crazy about the avocado green (I'm not really either), but he said to me, "That's a big quilt." I said that it wasn't so big and that it was for a twin bed.  This is proof as to how out of control my quilt sizes have become lately.  Later, I threw it over the queen size guest bed and well, of course you can see in the third picture how huge it really is.  Ooops.  Not to worry though, as I now plan on taking one row out, which will give me three stars that I plan to make quilted pillow cushions to go with the quilt.

As I was working on this quilt I kept wondering what I would do with this quilt.  I mean, I don't really care for the avocado green anymore, so what to do?  Then, as I was looking at it, I was thinking how beautiful it would look in a room full of pine wood.  Hmmm...  The cottage of course!  I spent summers at our family cottage on Lake Huron built of pine.  It will look great there.  Are you reading this mom?  Hope you like it, because it will be coming your way some day in the not too distant future, once I quilt it!

Avocado green is one of my favs@ Just saying .....

Please do a post on quilting this big boy. I'm curious how quilters handle these big ones through their sewing machine. It's a lovely quilt and it's going to look amazing when finished!

That's going to look lovely in a pine cabin! Now I've got an urge to go visit family so I can see Lake Huron!

I really like this. Did you post somewhere about how you made the stars? I am soooo far behind in my blog reading with my home computer all messed up still.
