    Big Teal Stars

    I just finished this one. I've had the quilt done for months, but was slow to get the hand stitching done on the binding. This isn't a typical quilt for me, as I usually do more traditional patterns and fabrics. Okay... old fashioned. LOL! I'm doing the binding on a 30s quilt now, that has a kajillion little pieces in it. Anyway, I mostly did this teal quilt to use up the large teal print it has in it.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    LOL! Thank you.. my avatar photo is a brown quilt I did a few years ago. It's an adaptation of a pattern I did by Jackie Robinson, called Eureka. After purchasing the pattern, I didn't want to use such narrow strips, so I modified it to use wider strips and pieces. Her quilt is totally gorgeous, but I like mine too. LOL! I have a very bad habit of never being able to leave things as written. Here's a larger photo of how my version turned out....

    Another wonderful idea, Jean. I really admire your talent. I need some of your inspiration to use up my "stuff" before it is too late. Keep up the good work, because you CAN.

    As you know, Sis... it's my goal to use up some of the "STUFF" in my stash, as well as using what I consider to be the "pretty" fabrics or collections that I really WANT to work with. I'm trying to alternate between the two. Sort of a self-imposed reward system. I just finished quilting one of my favorite kinds... a 30s scrappy quilt, and when I get finished with the hand stitching on the binding, I'll share a photo of that one as well. It's nice to have this venue to share with!
