The Stars Have a Setting Fabric



This morning I received an e-mail from the LQS.  For Day #1 of their Customer Appreciation Week they were offering 40% off of any one cut of fabric. Very seldom does everything line up — a great sale, the need for a large length of fabric, budget and time.  I ran to the shop during lunch hoping I’d find something that I liked as well as what I showed yesterday or better yet that I’d like even better.

I did.

This is an older April Cornell fabric from the Nostalgia line – pattern # 35122. The creamy soft (very soft) yellow works well with all of the existing star backgrounds and the soft blue print gives just enough interest to the setting squares without becoming the focus point. I love that it is going to give a soft look to the quilt.

Yes, two more stars are done.  I sat in a different chair (no arms), had a bright light and possibly most importantly, wasn’t distracted by the TV. The stars went together much faster. So, I might just catch up by the end of the week and then can start working on other things after making a star.

One Thought on “The Stars Have a Setting Fabric

  1. You really had you stars (pun intended) in alinement for your background fabric. I hope you bought more than you think you’ll need. You know how that goes, any way if you should have extra it is a nice light neutral that can be used in a number of your projects.
    Today for me I bought bins to box up my books in the living room so as to free up space in our small home. It’s so we can have a very open living room as my husband who just retired needs to feel as though he has more space. I like the idea not the doing of it as my books are there because I needed a place to put them
    Oh well he and I are more important than books
    Oh you said get caught up on your stars? You have so many pictured I thought that you are right on track. Although with the holidays and cold/flu if you can it wouldn’t hurt to get a bit ahead
