“Rolling Stars” Quilt
This quilt basically copies Tara Faughnan’s “Small World” design, which is the first project of Season 2 of The Color Collective, hosted by Amy Newbold’s Sewtopia.
I fell in love with this design the moment I saw it. AND, it’s made with the freezer paper method, which I really like to use.
To remind, each month Tara Faughnan gives us a new design AND a 12-piece Bella color palette from which to make the design. I added the darker, fern green, as I had some on hand and felt the need of green. Tara also suggests an additional 12 color Kona choices one could add, and the brighter red/orange was in that secondary set of colors.
I put a hanging sleeve on this quilt, as it really wants to hang. But I don’t have another logical spot in my house at the moment, having already hung a few of these Color Collective projects.
I quilted on my domestic with a 1-inch straight line pattern. I did not want to take anything away from the quilt pattern so kept it simple.
The backing is “Confetti” from the Ruby Star Society, and I liked the soft look of it for the backing.
These “stars” really do roll!
Thank you, The Color Collective.
I’m so happy you are planning on doing SEASON 3.
