Tis the season

Oh, I seem to be able to pull together fabrics for a quilt so why am I so bad when it comes to decorating my home for the holidays. The quilt now on display is ‘Winter Solstice’ hanging over my buffet has a lighted artificial garland and some holiday decorations. Makes my home look a little more festive.

Winter Solstice

The background is mostly made with 2″ finished four patches and squares. I am not sure WHY I decided that they needed to be so small. They add some texture but you almost have to have your nose against the quilt to see all of the different fabrics.

Happy Holiday !

    I really like the stars on this quilt. The way the star “arms” alternate being long and short makes them look sort of like they are rotating and twinkling. Did you make them “wonky” or was each size arm cut the same way? Either way, it’s a great effect.

    I laughed at your questioning why you made the squares so small. I like that effect, too. Kind of like tails on comets. Neat quilt!

      Louise, the star ‘arms’ are two separate rectangles. I am thinking that I probably oversized the two ‘long arm’ pieces of the rectangle and then trimmed to size. I the smaller arm was done using the ‘snowball’ technique. All of those stars were done the same. I am working on some wonky stars now but, again, they are all the same size. Wonky but precise – it that possible? thanks for stopping by. Micki
