“Stargazing” – Featured Quilt of the week!

Stargazing

The Milky Way, the Big Dipper, and the Little Dipper seem to fill the night sky and light up the castle in a dreamland.  This fun appliqued and pieced project was inspired by my friend Tonye Belinda Phillips, a wonderful applique artist.  Be sure to check out her web site www.tonyebelindaphillips.com and see for yourself why she and her work are so inspiring.  I was also thinking of a trip I had taken with my husband to Crater Lake, Oregon.  We stayed at the historic lodge and were up late into the evening stargazing at a breath-taking sky.  The early morning sunrise over the rim of the crater was equally impressive.  So much to be inspired by, so little time!  Of course this is a pattern from my latest book, “Perfect Fit Pieced Borders”.  It uses some fun embillishments including wool, velvet and organza as well as quilting cotton, and then is finished with a fun quilt design.  Hope you will try a version of your own!
