I grew up with the Don Mclean song starry starry night, I didn't realise until I was an adult that it was about Vincent Van Gogh - I'm sure I was told at the time,
but didn't listen .......
I saw the painting a few years ago in Paris - Its one of the few that took my breath away. The colour & texture....... Beautiful.
Why am I talking about Don mcLean? and Vincent Van Gogh??
I decided to call this quilt I'm working on Starry night :)
Its made out of Flannel
Its colours are beautiful, bright & muted - the flannel gives it a fuzzy cloudy kinda look
I imagine come the cooler months when a chill is in the air it will be the bee's knee's to cuddle into
Its a bit trickier to piece than I anticipated and driving me crazy :)
|I rarely use one whole fabric range in a quilt - Usually I mix it up. |
This time I'm using purely Anna Maria Horner's "Folksy Flannel". I bought a fat quarter bundle from Pink Chalk over 18months ago.
I may add in a bit of the new LouLouthi flannel range if I need to, the colour range looks similar & I think it will mix in nicely
I've tried to alternate pink & blue backgrounds/ stars
I have 6 stars completed - 3 more to go
bit of sashing then I'm planning on hand quilting it all together
back to sewing !
-Recipes for spinach pie coming :)
