I made a pillow with stars on it for my Wish upon a star challenge at Project Quilting, Season 4, challenge 4. I am really enjoying the different projects, are you taking part? You have to name your project so I’ll call this Star Light, Star Bright.
I used a wild batik that has been in my stash for quite some time. It is a thicker fabric and even has paint on it. I remember buying it….sight unseen….and not caring for it at all. I keep mixing it in with things and I thought it would make a great pillow. The stars were actually cut out of the same fabric.
I love using my Sizzix Big Shot and the die I used is called Starburst, I have used it before on other projects. One of them was a mug rug that you can see here, there is also more information about the Sizzix Big Shot and using the dies.
I think it is always fun to see what the piece looks like before quilting and….
after quilting. Same background but it seems to disappear with the quilting.
Today was the big day that we were supposed to get High Speed internet but…..it didn’t happen. We have been having high winds and a snow storm is coming tomorrow so they didn’t get everything up on the water tower yet. I can’t imagine trying to climb up on top of a water tower even if the wind wasn’t blowing!! I am scheduled for next Thursday which is okay.
