I am getting close to finishing the Fan Quit so my mind keeps going to the next quilt. I decided that it will be the giant star.
I love that it has so much room for hand quilting!
I am working on ideas for what to quilt in those big white setting squares and the wide border. I will post about that as soon as I get the top marked.
I purchased an extra wide piece of dark blue fabric for the backing and wool batting. Currently the wool batting is hanging out to relax.
It is hanging on the wall in front of a quilt so that is what you see showing through in the picture. when Hobbs wool batting comes out of the package it is so bunched up and wrinkled that it can drive you crazy, so this time I decided to let the wrinkles hand out for several days before I use it.
I have always loved star quilts so here are a few others that are in line to be quilted some day (click pictures to enlarge)
I think I have my work cut out for me!
I better get busy
