Stars at Sea
It was sewing weekend with Country School and the first thing I worked on was getting the Stars at Sea top together. I really love it but I'm thinking about removing a star in the right and replacing it with a red one but I think we all know the probability of that happening is about 10%. I made this quilt to be a sample showing off the Color Wheel Stash Pack. I used only one set of fat quarters. Now I just have the small task of quilting to do but I expect to quilt this one right after I finish Lost My Marbles because this one will be a simple all-over design.
Here's the pattern if you like this enough to make one for yourself. The original is done in bright batiks.
Before I made mine I planned out the colors. (My quilt above is hanging upside down from this image.)
Before I cut out my stars I cut 2 strips from each fat quarter to set aside for binding. I'm going to have a bright scrappy binding. Maybe this will be the right place to add more red to the quilt.
After I finished the Stars at Sea quilt top I was excited to jump in and start on Antelope Canyon. I think this is going to be a beautiful quilt and I'm excited to work on it more next month.

I love your Stars at Sea quilt. The Color Wheel Stash Pack has such a nice intensity of color that it really pops off the white background.

Just the thought of trying to replace one of the stars after it's all put together gives me the heebie jeebies. Red for the border sounds JUST right!!

The scattered stars is so cheery and the Antelope Canyon is very intriguing and graphic. You've got 2 very interesting quilts on the go.
