But first I had to do all the prep work... find a backing (a piece of muslin that I had bought to make the swap blocks, but after washing it seemed too course and not high quality even though it was expensive), find a large enough piece of batting, and find some thread. Here is the pile of required elements ready to move on to the next step...pin basting.
Yay - can't wait to see how you quilt your beautiful broken dishes.
If I don't respond to the inspiration right away, it is forgotten an hour or 10 minute later.
Follow your heart. The Broken Dishes is so pretty! !
Isn't it annoying when your inspiration is NOT on the project that most needs to get finished? Sigh. That's when I have to remind myself that it's my hobby and I can quilt whatever I want to. And I understand how you feel about a coarse muslin. Sometimes it's just the right thing, other times, maybe not!
I really like the scrappy navy sashing idea for your star blocks. It ties them together really nicely, and blue is just a great color with stars, don't you think? :)
When your muse calls, go with her! :)
Love the Red Broken Dishes!
