I recently checked Denyse Schmidt's Modern Quilts Traditional Inspiration out at the library.
There were several projects in the book that I would do. But before I had to return it, I did work on this star quilt.
Mine is not a scrappy star - though I really like the scrappy star. I did mine with whatever fabric I had enough of. A print background with some essex linen for the star. I figure I would do some hand embroidery in the star to add something a little extra.
As I was going through my stash for this quilt, I have decided that I need larger pieces of solids. Besides white, all my pieces are a fat quarter or smaller. Definitley need to go fabric shopping!
