So several members of Stashbusters decided to make this quilt called Twinklers. I opted to hop in and make one too. I went through my drawer of 2 1/2" strips and cut all the squares for it, half light, half dark. Then I went through my drawer of 1 1/2" strips and cut the squares for the star points, also half light and half dark. I put them in paper bags by value and drew them out and sewed them together so they'd be very scrappy.
It came out VERY scrappy, but I'm happy because you can mostly see the little twinkly stars even though some of the fabrics are VERY busy, and some of the lights are not quite as light as I'd like, some of the darks not as dark..
Now I need borders and I can't decide what color border to use. I think blue would bring out the blues in the quilt too much, they are already quite prominent... Perhaps a red? Opinions are welcome.
It’s Cooler in the Mountains!
