Maverick Bright Stars
Here is another Maverick Bright Stars - I had given an earlier one away, and missed it!! So, here is another. My friend Jody gave me that border and a lot of bright solids for this project - they just HAD to go together - thanks Jody!!! The block stars are made with solids, and what appears to be scrappy stars is really the sashing.
I added the little black flanges to each side of the little patches - it seemed to help define that space. That border fabric is just plum FULL of fat Ladybugs - perfect for a child. This quilt might be a donation to the Guild Silent Auction, if I can stand to part with its cuteness.
This was a gorgeous day, (below) so I quick snapped this photo. Today, Mother's Day, we are kept indoors with snow, wind, rain - awful weather but we are grateful for any moisture.
And here is the backing for Maverick Bright Stars, made with more donated brights. These squares are cut 8 1/2 inch. I pieced some, and here are still a few "holes" needing filling in.
I am waiting for a nice WARM spring day so I can sandwich this cute quilt.
