Liberated Stars Catch Up


Hi sew along gals, I didn't forget about this but time did slip away while I was dreaming of what to make of my lovely solids. Finally I got a day to just sew and I used the new Gee's Bend Solids for Gwen's liberated stars...
I am not quite done as I need suggestions for the borders, corners etc...and I'll have to wait on those until we get back from South Carolina to pick up our dear daughter from college this next week. I added just a touch of some Kaffe roman glass on a couple of the small stars...maybe I'll work that into the borders, etc. I can't help but think that if those lovely Amish of the past had met Kaffe they might have had a few exceptions to their rules! I can see that these little stars do "twinkle" as Gwen says in her book...I really loved making them and will definitely encourage others to do so too!

OMG I LOVE this, It is so much nicer than mine!!! Adding in the stars in the sashing is such a great touch. My words are the next project in line, so hopefully I can start them Sunday.

Who would have thought to use Kaffe and Amish in the same world? Love it - and your wonderfully wonky stars!
