Lemoyne Star Quilted Trivet »
InstructionsRight now, I need help deciding what color threads to use to sew the pieces AND to quilt! I only have a picture of the fabrics I want to use...hopefully this will come through ... will love to share the finish project!
Type of item: Home Decor
cotton fabrics and batting as suggested by pattern, chose fabric color to coordinate with recipient's colors -- red, gold, blue
What was your inspiration?
My son's home has these colors so I wanted to try using them. There was a green that didn't make the cut ;-)
I wanted to do it as a gift to them.
What are you most proud of?
Choosing to use the matching thread colors ... a bit challenging, with changing out the threads every time I went to a different point. When it came to choosing the edge color-the backing color did nothing to the front. So with my husband's help, we chose the blue ... I think it came out quite well. Yes, husbands can help and can have good ideas! ;-)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Have fun! There's so many choices of combinations. Others have adapted the size & such of this pattern, but I'm just fine with the way it is.
