So which quilt am I going to enter?
I did think long and hard about taking the obvious route, but actually I thought it would be a nice change for everyone if I picked my somewhat overlooked Cherry Star...
I love this quilt to pieces; I finished it so close to the Brit Bee Constellation that it has been playing second fiddle ever since.
It's just such a happy quilt, and actually took quite a lot of effort (for me!). Do you do that, make something, get embroiled in it at the time, and then look back and wonder how you had the time and inclination to get something so right?
Now if you are coming over here from the Festival, and don't know me, please note, I sew on the dining table, and have to shift every mealtime, I have no design wall and 3 'helpful' children, so getting the layout for this was a logistical feat in itself.
Having completed this quilt way back in January, when the garden was less than pretty, I thought it was only right to give it another airing especially for the occasion...
