A morning without rain is an opportunity that cannot be missed. Grey and wet november days are replaced by a grey and cold november day. So, I am having a little photo session outside.
My november stars finishes at 50" * 75", all soft and light with it's tuscany silk batting. Quilted with baptist fans on a long arm machine, and with a bit of added hand-quilted in perle cotton to emphasize a few of the stars.
These "maverick stars" (Bonnie K Hunter's phrase) are a fun invention from Gwen Marston. Both women are among my quilting hero's. The beautiful quilting is done by Anne, and the colors are among my most favorite combinations. So, there's lots to like about this one ; )
I have been a bit quiet lately on the blog. A sore shoulder is preventing me from doing to much of anything. Including cutting, sewing and quilting. A test of my patience, I'm afraid...
Lesson learned, I don't expect to make any presents this december... So a reminder to myself: next year I will make a few small quilts and gifts throughout the year. Is it too early for new years resolutions, yet?
Enjoy your makings!
