60 x 72
It's a flimsy!
(No design wall here and it's too cold to go outside to take a picture so you just get glimpses for now until it is actually a finish).
It consists of 30 different 12 inch stars with a blue background done in 30s reproduction fabrics.
Long ago (maybe 2013 and/or 2014??) I joined in two different birthday clubs and these stars are what I requested when my birthday month rolled around. I was surprised that there were no star repeats especially since these were two different groups of people. Of course I didn't have enough for a quilt the size I wanted so I had to make several of the 30 blocks. I had a difficult time coming up with a variety of different stars but I made it....finally!!
When I dug out this UFO I was surprised I only needed one more block. I'm not sure what I was thinking size-wise originally but I figured now 60 x 72 suits me for a nice lap quilt. I was probably originally thinking of adding sashing to make a bigger bed quilt but I don't like to make sashing so I didn't. Now it may look pretty busy when all is said and done but I kind of like
no-place-for-the-eyes-to-rest-here kind of quilts.
This is the final block I came up with and made the other day to move this oldie forward. It's actually not a star (it's called Duck Tracks) but it looks like one to me.
And, hey, I even found enough fabric for a backing and have it ready to go. I bought it to do some chicken scratch embroidery to use for sashing in my Grandma's Apron Strings quilt but those gingham squares were waaaaaay too tiny for that.
If I feel in the mood to crawl around on the floor (and suffer the consequences) I may even get it pin basted tonight. MAY.
My big decision for the day is whether to make pumpkin pie or pumpkin bread or pumpkins bars from the pumpkin I took out of the freezer last night. The pumpkins were prolific in the garden last year so maybe I should research some new recipes.
