I fought the wind...and the wind won! It has been far too windy to get a proper picture of the Starburst quilt top (and I tried!), but I was an able to get a post-basting aerial shot. :D
I backed it in flannel and it feels so soft and cozy. I really like the size of this quilt too. It is the perfect size to curl up under!
The top is 50% quilted right now. If I am able to decide on a binding fabric by the 4th, I'll definitely finish it in time for the Starburst QAL Parade! At the moment, I'm trying to decide between Running Stitch in Lime and Clown Stipe in Aqua. They each give the quilt a completely different personality. Maybe I'll head down to the quilt shop today and see if anything else wins my heart over!
Here is what has been going on: In Progress: 1) Starburst QAL:
The Starburst QAL assignment for this week is to complete two stars. There is something really satisfying about building a 32" block! One block would make such a cute baby blanket or wall hanging. These two blocks are the only sewing I've done this past week. I went on some crazy spring cleaning kick. When I get the rare urge to clean, I try not to fight it!
No Progress 2) Scrappy TAL - I need to finish quilting this one. 3) Designer Block of the Month 2012 - Waiting for the next block. My other Work-In-Progresses for the Quarter: 4) Looking Back - All pieces cut. I am picking this project back up in February 5) Swoon - All pieces cut. I am picking this project back up in February 6) Flower Girl Quilt - All pieces cut. I am picking this project back up in March.
