I don't have a name for this quilt but I love love love it! Back in April I was queen bee of two groups that use the same book, 99 Modern Blocks, as the inspiration. I picked the Parisian Star for both bees and sent out this gorgeous blue solid (blue raspberry bella solid) with a request for spring-y colors.
I got back 20 gorgeous blocks and made 10 more to make it bigger.
Now it is done and I love it! It's actually been done since Monday or Tuesday but I've been using it with great results (took a nap today!) and haven't even cut the threads off or washed it yet!
I handstitched around each star to keep it cozy and soft and because,
despite the pain, I love to hand quilt. It is so comforting to sit and
work on it and then to see how it all turns out is sooooo wonderful!
Big payoff there. My favorite.
I am also really pleased with how the back turned out. Though it looks greenish here, it's really mostly light blues. I really need a real camera....Usually I just find fabrics that work with the colors and put them together until I have enough to cover the back. That's what I did for this one, but I think it turned out better than it usually does!
I used a scrappy binding I just had on hand, (well, sewed a couple extra pieces together) and voila! Done. It is a good throw sized quilt and perfect for naps. I'm 5' 10" and I like big throw quilts. Though I didn't measure it (yet), it is a good size for snuggling!
