Stars and Sprigs 13-16
The photo above has the appliqué blocks 13, 14, and 15 for the Stars and Sprigs quilt that I am making. As you can see, I also made a few more stars. I have cut about 15 stars; but I am sewing them thinking of light and dark star as needed. My blocks are looking like a garden through the seasons. Some reminds me of spring, others summer, and quite a few of fall.The photo below is block 16 all pined and ready to sew. I usually look at the photo of Kim's quilt that came with the pattern and try to find the block I am working on. When I looked at her picture, I noticed that her block 16 has an extra leaf that is not in this pattern. See the orange flag? That is the leaf that I added. Kim gave us hundreds of leaves to choose from; but I had to draw my own for that spot. Just feels like my connection to Kim's genius. I have also started my first border. It only has brown twigs so far; and it is looking a lot like my real garden -all winter.
