In an effort to clear some space in my closet, I’m recommitting to getting my WIPs done. I had an “Aha!” and a “Duh!” moment the other day when I realized that the faster I get my WIPs done, the more room I’ll have in my closet.
The first WIP I chose to work on was this almost finished quilt top.
I started this top about two and a half years ago when I was on a mission to use every little, itty, bitty scrap. I used improvisational piecing to stitch together the teeny pieces of scraps into “made fabric” and used those to make stars. If you’d like more info on this technique, check out 15 Minutes of Play by Victoria Findlay Wolfe.
The top has one jumbo star in the center and little wonky stars surrounding the large star.
For the backing, I chose this Dear Stella dot fabric in a bright green. I think it will be a nice contrast to the subdued gray background fabric on the front of the quilt.
I’m still debating on how to quilt all the negative space, but am leaning toward using it as an opportunity to practice my swirls.
