My husband shoveled a path to the clothesline so I could go out and take a few photos now that the weather has warmed up just a little.
I participated in a Birthday Club several years ago. Members request a block for their birthday month and I requested any star in 30s reproductions on a blue background. I was thinking these stars were from two different Birthday Clubs but now that I look at the stars it looks like I made all but about 8 of them. Most of the blocks I received were on solid blue backgrounds. I guess I'm a little wilder.
My birthday wish was a Star sampler. I don't know what took me so long to get this together since I only needed one more star to make a total of 30.
I did variable width straight line quilting on my DSM in a variegated blue thread.
I was afraid to begin with that when the lines were closer together the quilt would be stiff. It's not. I used a light weight 100% polyester batting and maybe that's why? Most of the time I use Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 and I'm thinking that's a little heavier and might have made it stiffer. Anyway, it all worked out and I like it a lot.
For the backing I used a gingham that's a little wrinkly like seersucker but it's not seersucker.
