First round, intuition quilt

The star was one of a bunch I made before Christmas, but the blue surrounding the star was too much, so they were stuffed into a drawer, as you do! Stilll, it seemed too good to waste, so I decided to use it (them?) in a intuition quilt.

To get rid of the overpowering blue fabric, I sliced off the corners and added rounds of a hopefully more interesting mix of scraps, then I squared it up again to about 20"...and now I'm wondering 'what next?!'

More stars! Round and round!

Sleeping under the stars should make you have more ideas. That is a good reason for this quilt! LOL.

Think you may be right...more stars. And there I was hoping for an easy way out...hey ho!

So pretty ... love your color gradations ... no such thing as an easy way out! More wonky stars!

Brenda said...

I'm with the others -- it needs more stars twinkling around the border.
