I am officially ready to pack up my sewing space and hit the road!
During the down time of several rain days, I was really happy to light upon a plan for my Zen Chic Figures panel, "Seeing Stars"!
What began as a test for a Moda Bake Shop recipe, that turned into a fail, has finally turned into this quilt top!!! You may read the original dilemma and how I was bailed out by Brigitte Heitland herself in this blog post from December 2014!
Ahh, these large (5") HSTs were so comfortable after teeny tiny fiddling with those mini minis! HSTs really are my happy comfort zone, trimming and all :)
|I love the nautical look it takes on from a bit of distance!|
I have known for a while that I would incorporate more "panels" to complete this top, but this particular layout and color scheme, along with the extra stars was what all came together for me at last!
I am really pleased to have this one wrapped up as a top and ready to quilt up!
In fact, I should be able to hit the ground east of the Mississippi running, with 4 tops ready to go when I get there!
Until then, as far as sewing goes, I am in a holding pattern...packing it up and getting ready to roll!
Minis, and mini minis, off the wall...
I will spare you any more packing pictures...it is a big transition, and bittersweet!
But long anticipated!
We are excited and happy to be going home!
