This is the little star in the center... it measures 4"... I think it is the perfect touch on this top. To recap... all the stars were made from one Layer Cake of Avant Garden by Momo... you know I LOVE MOMO! The background is a butterscotch Grunge and you know I LOVE GRUNGE... and I LOVE anything yellow... so I LOVE LOVE LOVE this top.... then tell me why it took SIX MONTHS AND TWO HOURS to get it DONE ... insert shaking head in disbelief.
If you want to read details about what I wrote about this top six months ago you can read that here and if you want to see Jen Baker's Vintage Star pattern you can read about it here. You can make the Vintage Star any size... from a baby quilt on up...when you break mine down it is sort of 4 baby quilt sized Vintage Stars sewn together. I like the idea of getting a bed size quilt from one Layer Cake and some background fabric.
I have plans to break out another UFO this week but first I have to deal with some dental issues for my son and I want to do some gardening... the weather here is currently GORGEOUS!!! I want to work in my yard before the 90 degree temps come in on Friday. I'm off to pick up some mulch and another perennial or two... now if I can just come home without another petunia that would be an accomplishment.
Oh since both of the pics I've shown have been pretty much reruns here is a pic of something new... the latest stuff I've potted up...
I've done two pots like this...they sit on either side of my garage...white geraniums, purple verbena, some dynamite orange petunias that followed me home from Natorp's, along with some other little orange petunias (I think these are a million bell variety) and some creeping jenny. I'll be watering like crazy come the weekend with those 90 degree days...hopefully these will have settled in by then.
