Now that Guðrún has shown her quilt on her blog, I can tell you a bit more about her quilt!
For a bit of a twist, ricrack (I’m trying my best to get rid of that stash….LOL) has been added around the circumference of the star and I have to say that I love the look! :o)
The light blue background material …. well there is a story with that. I purchased a blue cotton scarf back in the fall and was washing it. You know the routine … a lot of dye came out of the scarf; so I just threw in some pieces of white fat quarters and viola! :o) If you do this, just be sure to set the dye with vinegar and salt in a bucket of water and soak for a few hours, or days if you forget about your fabrics.
Now, hop on over to Guðrún’s site and see how she ended up displaying this quilt. You will enjoy reading her post about it!
Have a great day!
P.S. Happy Birthday to my DH ….. I’m off to make him a special cake for dinner tonight.
