evening star, top completed

Maybe I should rename this morning star.
I got up at 5 o'clock this morning to see the crescent moon with Venus and Jupiter. 
The air was so clear and it was -21 degrees when I stepped outside.
Here in the city we don't see many stars so I like to take advantage of the planets.

I did some work (we have an inclement weather day so campuses are closed) then finished putting together this top. It is with more lighter fabrics than what I have been working with lately and shows and feels lighter in reality--a winter quilt!

Block finishes 12"
Set 7 by 8 blocks
Top measures 84 by 96

Solids cut from 2 1/2 inch strips
Prints cut from 4 1/2 inch strips

My design, use at your pleasure.

Hello Lynn
I just discovered your site and know I will be back many times because I just love to make solid and printed blocks.
Greetings from the Netherlands from a real klein meisje (although I am not that small anymore)

I just discovered your site from Sarah Craig, Confessions of a Fabric Addict. I looked though some of your quilts and I love how you use so many different fabrics and the colors are so saturated and strong. Wish you had an index of your quilts as I love looking at them. Great work!
