STITCH LINES...... Ramblings on life as a quilter, stitcher, traveler, photographer, gardener and lover of books, cats and fine chocolate....

Here it is...98% finished. It's quilted (by machine) and bound. I still have to do a label. And I'm still considering adding a little quilting in the tiny star blocks. Overall measurement is about 16" square. I decided on the name "Midnight Dancer". Daughter Laura came up with that name, actually, after reading Karens' comment about how she liked the way the colors "danced" in the border... Thanks to all who suggested names, especially Wendy. I loved her suggestion of "Stars of Wonder (like I wonder why anyone would want to do that to themsleves, or I wonder if anyone has any idea how long this has taken me, or I wonder how many times I have used my ripper...)" Yes I really liked that suggestion Wendy, but thought it was a bit too long. Of course I had wondered all those things, during the process.... Because I had to send in the registration form for the Show, I had to decide on the name pretty quickly, so Midnight Dancer it is! And because Lee told me I needed to put something in for "scale" so you could see how tiny those little pieced stars really are... here's my seam ripper .... which I DID use more than a few times.... And NO, those teeny ones are NOT paper-pieced.......
