The challenge fabric is the black with the multicoloured stars. You can see it in the two biggest black stars that are not purple.
It was interesting to see what other Guild members had done — one made the challenge fabric into prairie points and put them in the middle of the quilt, i.e. sewn between the seams rather than the usual putting them around the edge. Another person used skinny strips as an accent.
My grandson’s favourite quilt had dinosaurs appliqued onto it. He kept returning to look at it.
The next project I am focusing on finishing is Geode, which is almost but not quite 60 inches square. The top is pieced and this aft I started piecing the backing, which is also cool in a minimalist way. Will post front and back pix when ready.
The plan is to spring for quilting rather than trying to do this one myself. I feel that’s my best chance to do something this size that I can feel comfortable having on display. Although I want to get this completed, there is no mad rush to have it quilted, which makes me popular with the quilter at this crazy time of year!
