Midnight Stars and Collage


Posted by Picasa

I couldn't wait to finish HUMBLE QUILTS Midnight Stars quilt along.
For me these small quilts give me the opportunity to try fabric choices that I wouldn't normaly use . I have had this lovely indigo setting fabric in my collection for at least 7 years and after seeing how good it looks I am sad that I only had a fat 1/4 of it . I just had to cut this fabric anyway I could to get it out . Lori's instructions for the blocks were just perfect and it went together a dream. Thank you Lori for taking the trouble to share this with us. I really love this little quilt.
You can learn a bit more about Indigo's by hopping over to Cottonopia Blog.

Now you all know I had a birthday on Friday- Once again thank you for all your good wishes, But hey look what I got from my PIC . One of VIRGINIA COLES miniature quilt collages. I have always admired her work from these far off shores and can't quiet believe I own this wonderful little bit of quilt art.
Big big thanks to you Sue.
