Night Birds: done for now

Not much sewing got done last week, but I got off to a quick start this week, largely thanks to notes I had made on my phone.  Just before it all went into the box I had climbed on a chair to get a good look and seen a few things I wanted to tweak.  The notes read "replace bottom with dark, replace top Carolyn Friedlander with dark and make thinner to room for strip under wee star." 

So my first step was to look again and see if I agreed with myself,  which I did.  Here's the before and after.  

Then a column of stars and geese and just like that I was done. Now I am going to have a cup of tea and feel pleased with myself.

And so you should feel pleased with yourself! I love this quilt Kaja and it looks glorious hanging on the line with the sun and shadows. Night Birds - a perfect name.

It dances with color. And now the stars over those thin yellow strips look like sparklers. Delightful.
