"Morning Coffee" by Me!
This one started because I had gone to Corvallis, OR for a service call on a longarm machine. I can't get all the way to Corvallis, and not check out the local quilt shop, so off I go. Oh look! They are just starting their BOM program for the year! Since the shop is about 2 hours away from me by car, Quiltwork Patches was kind enough to mail me my fabric and directions each month.
A year of making 2 blocks each month goes by, and now I have all my blocks ready to go. I set them as suggested with narrow sashing strips and cornerstones, then added my own borders.
Since this was my quilt to play with, I really wanted the quilting to shine. I used wool batting, which gives it extra loft, then a tight background fill in the cream behind each star.
