A fun little project.
I've wanted to make this quilt for two years… I've toyed around with the ideas a few times, and always stalled…. I had never been much of a feathered star 'fan'… Star quilts? YES! But feathers stars, not so much... until I saw this quilt. (below in green)
So when we, at the Quilt Alliance, who are partnered with the Quilt Index, made this years challenge to be "Inspired by…" Meaning, Find a quilt that inspires you on The Quilt Index, and make your own inspired version of it, in a 16" quilt, Well…. I knew exactly what quilt it had to be!
from INSPIRATION ( CLICK HERE) to design…
to slow and putsy sewing…
To adding design elements…
My Little 16" square beauty! Yes, those points are VERY TINY!
So. That's as far as I am on my little quilt! It took me hours to rip out all the paper, flying to India! I may or may not have left a paper trail, all the way from NYC to India!
I'm ready to quilt it... My mind is full of texture and pattern from visiting india...
What on earth will I do to finish it?
