Yes! More than a year in the making, I’m very pleased that Scrappy Stars Around the Corner is finished. And I’m pleased with the result. There were moments, as I pushed and pulled the #bigheavyquilt through my machine, when I was afraid that it would be a wonky, stretched-out mess. However, the magic of the washer and dryer put everything back where it should be, and it’s not bad at all.
This carton of eggs from my farmers’ market was the inspiration for the color scheme. I knew I would add some darks for contrast, and then I found the turquoise and gray scraps from a project, so it morphed a bit. I originally thought of it for the master bedroom, and giving it borders, but it ended up not matching. Then I let it sit while I tried to decide what to do about it. I finally decided to finish it up for a gift or to donate.
The back is pieced from four gray and gold fabrics.
This top lay much flatter than Scrap in a Box from the previous year, so perhaps my triangle piecing improved? However, when I went to run quilting lines through it, I discovered problems with my sashing. Next time, I will mark centers (at least) on my sashing strips so that everything lines up better.
And it’s passed its snuggle test, so I guess all is well!
