Love in Wonky Stars
I am so honored to present to you this quilt! It represents the love of 10 women in 20 blocks, each as unique and delightfully "wonky" as ourselves.
This quilt top came together so quickly, it took me by surprise. Before I knew it, it was time to quilt. I chose a very PINK back, hoping to make some little girl smile...
The wonky stars are so angular, so playful they called for random straight-line quilting. This was my first go at this technique. I so highly recommend it! It was easy, fast and truly fun. I tend to get so nervous and worried about making mistakes when I quilt. This design was all pleasure.
You can't seem my less than perfect lines much, even from the back. I marked the lines with water soluble pencil on the quilt top, using a long quilting ruler. They disappeared in the wash.
made with the Love circle of do. Good Stitches. Thank-you to all who contributed blocks:
Melanie of Texas Freckles,

Elizabeth of Oh, Fransson!
Lee of Freshly Pieced,

This quilt will be off to Wrap them in Love on Monday of next week. And I'm already looking forward to my turn to design our quilt again!
Wishing everyone the beauty and joy of spring!
