Things are chugging right along on the wedding quilt. I can't believe that I am lucky enough to have friends willing to do such a special thing for and with me. Check out all the stars hanging on Kristal's design wall!
I must admit that most of those stars are from Kristal, but a few of them are mine! If you roll over the above photo in flickr, I've made a note about which blocks are mine.
It seems like a lot, but it's not really much, or at least that's what everyone else is saying. This is supposed to end up a queen sized quilt-- as of right now Kristal maintains that we've only got enough for a crib sized quilt.
No big deal, though, because I am really enjoying making these blocks. I've dug into my stash for grays-- I hoarded a million a couple years ago during Fat Quarter Frenzy at Quilting Adventures-- and am trying not to mooch too many beautiful batiks from Kristal. I've had to buy a few blues, and have swapped a few, too.
The wonky star is much easier to make than I thought it would be. Now that I've done several I hardly have to think about the process anymore. Of course, that's how I've always felt about "improv"-- it's not as improvisational as everyone would have you think. There's actually a fair bit of planning and consideration that goes into it. Or maybe that's just my brain. Thoughts?
