All my brown star blocks are pieced. The quilt is called Chocolate Stars but because I'm not loving it, and am spending so much time in the garden, I find myself calling it "Dirt Stars"!
Now what to do with the setting?
On my bright version I didn't do the recommended sashing/setting, but I did make the friendship star border. However this time I really don't feel like sewing all those friendship stars again. I think I just talked myself into adding the sashing strips/ four patch setting, with maybe one or two plain borders depending on how much fabric I have left.
I read an interesting article about current trends in quilting based on the International Quilt Market - click here to read it. It's Quilt Festival in my neck of the woods and I just wish I had more time to visit the venues and see what the trends are around here - click here for the events.
