On the design wall: Constellations by Lizzy House
I was so excited to be able to cut into my stack of Constellations by Lizzy House this weekend. It's been waiting patiently on the work table. Pressed and everything! My notebook filled up with so many ideas that I had a hard time narrowing it down to one.
My son got a telescope for Christmas and we've been reading and talking about the stars and moon phases a lot. So of course I thought of stars. I kept the blocks big and graphic to really show off the fabric. Each star measures 12". The reversed layout also plays up the contrast of the stars. I LOVE this line so much. Especially the constellation prints.
The working title for this quilt is "Stargazer".
Luckily, I got to spend the afternoon sewing with my guild. All my fat quarters were cut up and the star points were made, but I ran out of time to assemble the blocks. I've been working on it a little here and there and it's starting to come together. Yay!
