No more stars for me

A couple of really productive days and suddenly I'm nearly done.  I have to say that I won't be making another wonky star for a while - more than 20 in this and I've had enough of them!  I have a pile of blunt-nosed triangles waiting to turn into borders:



 and once they are on, Little Elephant will be ready to join the queue for quilting.  




I've never had a queue for quilting before.  I need to finish my as-yet unblogged quilt, then Charley is next in line, then this one.  It's funny, but since I decided I didn't care that I was slow, I seem to be getting faster.  

Posting this on Monday Makers at ayliN-Nilya , Show and Tell Tuesday at I have to say, Lets Bee Social at Sew Fresh quilts and WIP Wednesdays at Freshly Pieced.

  5. I understand your feelings about the stars: I did the same thing with fleur de lis appliques....burned out and walked away. The quilt is so cute and colorful. I agree with Chantal....there's so much happening that my eye automatically moves around the quilt. Some little cutie will be fully entertained for a long while.

  7. This looks fantastic, Kaja. I can't decide which I like best: the circles, the animals, the stars or the long strips. They make my eyes move around. I like your decision to put less red at the top; it gives more "weight" to the bottom.
