Nothing beats a new, freshly washed and dried, crinkly and squishy quilt!
This quilt has a magical quality about it, to me it is like looking out at the universe.
The pattern is Star Crossed by It's Sew Emma, Fat Quarter Shop. The pattern has four quilt sizes but I chose to create a square quilt, it measures approx. 46" x 46". It's a beautiful pattern and clever in it's simplicity, there is a lot of scope for using prints to create different effects. When I finished the quilt it felt like there was just a bit too much black so I added in some appliqué moons made with Cotton + Steel metallic canvas.
The centre fabric is Shibuya in Linen, Tokyo Train Ride by Sarah Watts; the parallelograms are Lined Grids in White, Doe by Carolyn Friedlander and the background is Petite Plus, Black & White by Cotton + Steel.
I did a bit of machine quilting in black and added some hand quilting in white perle thread, which I also used to stitch the moons.
It doesn't bother me, I actually quite like it and chose to leave it in.
