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.

I really love the overall look in you choice of colors. They are so much details to look at in that quilt.

Viktoria said...

This quilt looks so amazing!!! The pattern, the colors ... just everything. I absolutely love it!

Laney said...

I love your wonky stars - and the rest of it :)

Sue Daurio said...

Those borders are going to look fabulous on the star spangled quilt!

Mary Marcotte said...

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.

Oh my gosh Kaja - it's really awesome to see it all together like that!

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.

Very pretty. I love the colors.

Sally Ziesler said...

Wow! I love the way this has evolved. One elephant was a very small starting point. Keep this one in the family. S ma

Andrea @ Mouse in My Pocket said...

This quilt is really fun! Is it from a pattern, or did you design it yourself?

Nilya said...

I'm happy to have seen your progress on your gorgeous quilt. Now, I'm wondering how you will quilt it...

Kaja said...

Yes, I still like them, just don't want to make any more for a bit!
