This is JOINT project between TONYA and I,
that I have been working on since my visit to see her in August.
I recalled her working on the STAR portions when she was in Paris, and I asked her,
"Whatever happened to that large star you were working on..."
She dug it out, and I nearly fell over, It's SO beautiful!
I said you have to finish that!
She said, "well, I don't like WHY seams!
I said, " do!"
"I will finish it!"
She decided she liked the orange/cheddar with bits of color thrown in,
so I set to doing what I love to do.. MAKING HUGE PIECES OF FABRIC...
The squares in the corners are 23" X 23"
Now to tackle those Y seams!
I saw YIPPEEE!
She says, WEEEEEEE!
I'm working on a similar one for myself...
But for this one, I am so thrilled to have worked on it...
It's a real beauty! Thanks T!
Scream.... I just screamed with joy.. Can you hear it? Oh my goodness!!!
What a gorgeous peace of art! I want to see this one in person.
V and T .. I can't leave this page.
I was just wondering what had happened to her string pieced star...I love what you did to it....and I think two-headed quilting makes for beautiful quilts. it looks great.
OMG! It's gorgeous. I love it!
This quilt SINGS to me! It SHOUTS to me! I do LOVE it!!!
Oooo this is going to be stunning! Love the colors.
Unbelievable!! That is one gorgeous quilt. I love the star, good thing you made Tonya finish it. And the orange 'fabric' you made is genius. Such a great idea. Love, love, love it!
I came back... just to stare!
I have never seen a more arresting star. It makes you stop and gap at it. Absolutely stunning! I have never done a Y seam, but I think I may have to learn how. Beautiful. beautiful.
Gadzooks!! This is so great!! Good for you, helping her out. This one is far to good to sit in some drawer. Woo-hoo!
Wowee, powee. looks so fantastic, V! What she didn't tell you was that I was thinking of just going plain white or light yellow. V said that would be waaaay too boring. was she ever right. Now she gets to do the "easy" part of putting those massive pieces together - with YYYYYs.
The Star: So many diamonds made from so many pieces - unbelievable! The Ground: Looks like an artist took out her big brush & oils - gorgeous! Together: So much movement. It's wonderful!
Victoria & Tonya...you are magicians with fabric!! It's amazing!!
This is just incredible. It must be awesome in person. I love the cheddar
background with the bits of color. What a striking piece!
That is absolutely beautiful, love all the colors against the gold.
holy cows and great balls of fire. that is just beyond happiness and beauty
I was looking at T's blog, asked her what happened to her star that she was working on in Paris and up it pops. I love this and the orange definitely makes it zing.
coolest! funnest! love it!
this is so-o-o beautiful...
i'd love to see "progress" pictures - of the project as it was being worked on...
any chance of pictures like that??
i can't help staring at it!!
Oooh, I remember that star! It's so great to see it with your crumby orange background. You are a fantastic quilting buddy to make T's UFO sing like this!!!!
OMG!!!!! I love this quilt.
Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Spectacular! Two heads are definitely better than one. What a wonderful result from your collaboration. :)
