Last night was a beautiful evening here on the Peninsula, so I decided to take my star quilt to the beach (as you do!!!).
These photo's were taken around 8:30pm, the light was just perfect.
If you want to know where this pattern came from see here.
I have never tired of these beautiful fabrics (Amy Butler Soul Blossoms and Kaffe Fassett Shot Cottons).
DH and Millie came too, DH thinks this shot should go into a magazine advertising the Peninsula!!!
The brown row is my last full round for this quilt.
The next row is my 'squaring up' round. What this means is that I will be placing triangles along the four finished sides (top, bottom and both sides), and then squares along the four corners. I've laid the readied triangles out so you can get an idea of what it will look like along the sides...
...and in the corners (now I just need to find time to stitch them all on!). Once this squaring up row is done I will need to work on the four corners until the quilt is a full square.
Initially I was only going to use the Amy Butler Soul Blossoms and Kaffes shot cottons for this entire quilt, however when I purchased some of the Amy Butler Organic Soul Night Tree in Cilantro, I changed my mind, I think this gorgeous print will look lovely for the squaring off round.
I started paper piecing this quilt back in February, so it may yet take me over a year to finish. It has come along way since then and it has been wonderful to have some hand work to pick up whenever I felt like some quiet stitching time!
Ok, back to reality now for me, I'm on the late shift at the library so I will see you tomorrow. xo
