Spring is in the very very early stages. Green grass has begun to sprout up in little tufts here and there, and I’m so glad I finished this quilt in preparation for spring.
This is a group effort from last year’s “Stitch That Stash Bee.” For my month I asked for these reverse rainbow starburst blocks in any color of their choosing. I’m so pleased with the variety of color I received, and I really think the grey block in the center helps to balance everything out.
I had to hand quilt this one. I just had to. The quilt told me to. Since the stars were a little funky I thought some fun square in square stitching, off center, would be what they needed.
I had this quilt almost done for MONTHS, and then it sat folded neatly on the corner of my sewing table for longer than it should have. But, it’s finished now.
With a gorgeous Alexander Henry print for the back. Thanks Bee Mates for my lovely quilt. I’ll certainly think of the sweet new friends I made when I’m curled up under it.
