Adding colors and blocks....

A quick post before I head off to my slumber....
It has been another busy weekend, but I did get to work on a few more blocks of this re-vamped vintage quilt {my insipiration quilt}


One of the things I love in the vintage quilt is the green/yellow combination....but I had to add more colors....BTW, the girl in the picture from my previous post is my youngest daughter.  She is a Mary too!!!!


The vintage quilt was most likely hand pieced and I love the solid white sections as well as how small the 'stars' are in the vintage quilt.  Mine are a little larger and machine pieced....

    
But it sews along fairly quickly and I think there are lots of fun options for quilting this one!
In fact, as I work on it I am finding all kinds of fun things to try with this design...


What's one more project?


Tomorrow begins the Rose and Star block party over at My Selfsown Life....I can't wait!
Good night!

  18. That will be a beautiful quilt when finished!
    FYI, the pattern was originally called Arkansas Snowflake. I've made a couple over the years with 30's prints.
