Star Quilt A Long

I ventured out yesterday after having lunch with Brenna and her family to purchase the fabrics for Amanda Jean's 2nd quilt-a-long. This one is going to be various star patterns. I think this is what I have chosen to make my version. The fabric underneath is what caught my eye first when I went in. I think I will use it for the setting blocks. Then I found these fat quarters to go along with it. I will use the white ones for the lighter pieces and go from there. I still have to get the background fabric though. let the fact that the background fabric I had in mind for this is more of a cream color than white when I focused in on this combination. Now, it's back to the store... OH NO.

Growing up, these were my very favorite color combinations. When I was in 16 and got my very own room for the first time since I was 19 months old, these were the colors I chose to decorate it. My great-aunt Iva crocheted me a pillow in these colors to put on my bed.

Those colors are gorgeous! Good luck with the quilt-a-long. I didn't even make it all the way through the last one. I think it is because I was trying to convert it to miniature and the math got me down. I'm looking forward to seeing your stars!
