What was your inspiration?
Again with quilts for Christmas. Two nieces, both want to be princesses, both want the same thing, one love pink and one loves purple. Hmmm, I thought, they get the same quilt, but in their colors of choice.
What are you most proud of?
Color combination works, and I like the star design in the middle. Quilts are about 4 feet by 5 feet... big enough for girls in grade school.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just have fun with the quilt. Make sure your angles for the star are an accurate 45 degrees, or else they just won't match up. Stip piecing the star is a huge, huge time saver, but you do have to plan the layout carefully for te effect of "radiating" colors.
