Back in July, shortly after I came home from my weekend in Portland, I started working on the “Crazy Star” pattern from Denyse’s book, to use in our family room (we only have three quilts in there, apparently that’s not enough cause we’re always negotiating for usage). I spent an afternoon piecing the strips for the stars, which are foundation pieced onto a piece of quilter’s muslin. Well, actually it took less than an afternoon. This pattern is free and fast, once I decided which fabrics to use. That takes me a while. I knew I wanted to use strong blues and greens, but I cut into some beloved old ones to go in here. In an effort to use and not hoard fabric, I’m showing no mercy these days. (If I have it and love it, why not use it?)
My biggest dilemma at this point is what the base fabric color will be. A solid, for sure.
This one’s going to be mine, I think. I love it so much.

Can we vote for your solid? I think tomato. Gorgeous palette so far, though. And I love that pattern.

choosing the fabrics always takes me a long time, too. what are you thinking for the background? something neutral or something with a little zing? either way, it’ll be gorgeous!
