Stars At Sea is done!
This weekend was a weekend of finishes. I've finished my weeks of dyeing 100 yards of fabric and I finished Stars At Sea.
On the dyeing front, except for some Shibori and ice dyeing, I'm mostly ready for the AQS show. I can go on vacation without having that hanging over my head. I know myself well enough to know that I'll probably dye a few more Shades Packs and Gradients in September but, technically, I only have to do the ice dyeing. Shibori is happening this week.
Between ironing, folding and packaging I also got the binding on Stars At Sea. You can read all about the quilt in the gallery. There's information there about the pattern and fabric that I used.
I even got the hanging sleeve done because this quilt will be one of the display quilts in my booth at AQS in October.
Yes, I did a fast machine stitched binding. If you visit the booth please just look at the front of the quilt!

I love the way you used all the different colors for the binding! It will look fantastic in your booth. Having the majority of the dyeing done is wonderful. There is nothing worse that having to push and push to get what you want done. I know you will be busy at the show, but you have to show us at least a before and after picture of the booth. Before will show all the gorgeous fabric for sale stacked up and the after will show the booth devoid of all fabric because you sold it all!

Congrats on both finishes. I have never done that big of an event, but it is always "push until the last minute" when I have had a booth anywhere.

What a wonderful way to showcase your beautiful fabrics! It's also a great way to show shoppers that your fabrics won't bleed onto the white background.

This is an eye catcher and will be perfect for your booth. My mind is trying to wrap itself around the dyeing of 100 yards of fabric.
