Liberty Star Top

I have been humming and hawing, shopping, collecting coordinating prints and auditioning backgrounds for ages now. Isn't it time I create something with these Liberty prints of mine?  How about a giant star quilt top, for example...



Again, the lighting is awful.  The evenings are getting brighter, but I still struggle to get a photo.  I should also say last night when I was taking this image, the neighbor's dog came over to investigate the top while it was flapping in the breeze.  He was not at all impressed and let me know barking and growling at it.  It's good he's cute.

Thank you all who suggested background colors the other day.  Rhonda suggested matching my background to one specific flowers in this print...I tried my best, Miss R!  It's Kona Bahama Blue.  I hope you like it as much as I do!  You can see the colors a bit better here.  The top really is prettier than it appears in the photo above....


Yet another quilt top to add to the pile of UFOs.  I'm on a roll piecing, but have little urge to quilt something this large.  That day will come.  For now I'll stay happy piecing away.

Sigh! Lovely Liberty! The giant star really allows the Liberty to show off! I quilted my giant star in quarters - straight lines in an L shape

Stunning & beautiful C! Perfect choice for the background! FMQ or condensed diagonal lines would look amazing through this. Jxo

I'm planning a giant star in Cath Kidston.....not quite as good as your Liberty one, but it's for td1 who has a new house.

diane said...

don't let that one sit too long. It's worth a fortune in Liberty fabrics and needs to be loved. It looks fantastic with the blue background

Good to see you went the aqua! Co-incidently I have been looking at the tutorial for that quilt this morning as it has been on the to do list for ages.

Sarah said...

I really like this quilt. I feel a little chuffed because I suggested picking out the aqua of the flowers too!
