Swirling Sea of Stars

In going through my stash, I came across solids that I purchased for (yet another) un-started project.

 

Rather than go back to those plans, I decided to switch these solids over to another string quilt. I have tons of strings that are going nowhere fast. This top should go along way to using them up.

 

The strings probably got drawn in much smaller than they will be in practice, though I do tend to prefer strings that are 1.5" or less in width when finished.

 

Once I have the paper piecing templates printed, this will make another excellent leader-ender project.

 

I'm really liking the movement created by the different colors of the central stars.

 

Blogged with more detail here.
