Along with the pieced bars, Judy cleverly turned them into stars (hey--I just rapped!) and I am loving them in all the different fabrics.
Next week we'll get the layout for the top. I'm hoping the chains will intersect in a beautiful way around these pinwheel stars! On other fronts, the Strawberry Fields quiltalong project is a completed top, which I am calling Patriotic Fields. I would have liked to have this done for the Independence Day holiday, but with my plan to hand quilt it, I'm not seeing a finish in the next four days!
This watermelon-y fabric was a gift some time ago from my newly married friend Tanya, with whom I'm having dinner Thursday night. I might bring the top to show her. Although not entirely in keeping with the vintage idea of the little quilt, it was the right color and was on hand!
