Level of completion:Cutting fabric
I’ve been mulling this one over for a while. Adam has always had such a strong, clean, simple design aesthetic, and as a result I ripped up more designs for this quilt than any other I’ve ever attempted.
Everything was too complicated.
A year ago I learned how to make itty bitty stars. They were okay, but not great. My skills have improved since that time. I’ve learned the basics of appliqué. I feel more confident in my construction ability.
I have the fabric; I just need to commit to it. The sketch is simpler than the final colors will be — I hope to make the larger stars split half-and-half in color to make them subtler, but I wanted to post the design and be done with it.
This is a make-you-crazy quilt, the kind you think about for a year before you ever cut fabric, because you have to know exactly where you’re going before you even start.
