This is the quilt that got me back to normal. I started this in August at a mini get away at my friend Christine's home. I originally saw the pattern on Pinterest, it is from a blog called My Poppet found HERE.
It was so much fun going through my scraps and finding my favorite colors. I am calling this quilt "chaos".
I was a little rusty after my little hiatus. I must have made 7 or 8 rejected blocks before I finished up this little quilt.
A little straight line quilting and I was done! I tried something different for the quilting. I used Aurifil thread with the green bottom ( I can't remember the number right now) and lengthened my stitch to 4 on my Bernina. I got a nicer looking stitch and it was much more even. Now all I need to do it get it bound.
I have a love/hate relationship with my morning glories. They are so beautiful but they are very invasive. Every year I lose the battle in my vegetable garden to eradicate them!
I think it looks like there is a light in the center of this one, and the star is pretty cool too.
Paired with the black eyed susans around the mailbox, they are perfect.
