But after I had a few blocks done with the yellow, the star shape started to speak to me, and needed to set them in a darker background. This meant a trip to the quilt shop (an hour and a half's drive away) to find the perfect dark brown. And then I had to learn how to make half blocks, to accomplish the on-point setting. But it was worth it, I think. This will look lovely as a backdrop when I start taping a new Bible study series in the fall.
By then I hope to have it quilted. I'm taking a class in machine embroidery which I hope will teach me how to digitize shapes that I can use for quilting. Maybe then I can make a dent in the pile of tops that need quilting.
