It's been a long time between finishes around here so I'm pleased to have one this month. This is based on "Morning Star" but I didn't measure the triangles that create the stars so they're not exact.
When I was cutting squares and rectangles it seemed like I kept cutting more and more greens, more greens than any other fabric, but now that I look at the photo of the quilt green does not seem to be the dominant color. Maybe it's just that the reds are brighter and the greens are more muted.... The colors are not exactly evenly dispersed but I think the stars overpower the background colors. It would be less obvious if the quilt were larger but it is what it is.
I didn't measure it before I folded it but it should measure at 43 1/2" x 50" or thereabouts. I hope to get it layered soon so I can begin hand quilting it.
I'll be devoting the rest of this month to my medallion quilt. I've taken to calling it "Little Miss Medallion." She seems to be just as particular as some little girls.
I'm linking this post to August Finishes: OMG Linkup at Red Letter Quilts. At the beginning of August I declared my intention to choose a pattern for a baby quilt and begin. I'm pleased to have not only chosen a pattern but to have also finished the top! Thanks for hosting OMG, Heidi.
