The last few days I haven’t felt inclined to really work on anything in particular. My deadline stuff is mostly taken care of. I thought about a project I’ve been wanting to start for a while and dug out all my materials for it. This is the Quiltsmart Lonestar kit. I pulled out some jelly roll strips I had from the Summer House by Lily Ashbury line. I had a partial jelly roll unused from a class I took a while back and a full unopened jelly roll. I needed 8 strips to create six different color sets for the lone star… so 48 strips total for the star itself.
First you have to cut lots of rectangles. Then you can start fusing and sewing!
A terribly blurry picture of my progress:
It feels good to work on some fabric I’ve been holding onto for a while! I love Lily Ashbury’s prints a lot, I think she’s my favorite fabric designer. She uses all my favorite colors and the patterns in her fabric are beautiful.
I’ve got two of the eight sections done so far. I need to buy some background fabric for it when I go to the quilt shop tomorrow.
Tons of little bonus triangles leftover too! These will work perfectly in my Pineapple crazy blocks.
Byron watched me sew while Ringo watched Doctor Who last night.
