Almost Done . . .

I've almost finished the patriotic star quilt, but not quite--I still have to stitch down the binding.


I thought I'd "save" the binding, though, for the next time Hubby and I take a little road trip--we have one coming up before long and binding a smallish quilt in the car is very do-able.


When I first added the red and yellow sashing, I thought it might be overpowering, but I quickly decided I like the secondary patterns that are formed with the contrasting colors.

So now what?  What's next?  Perhaps I should piece this month's Schnibbles quilt, but I think I might try to get some applique done instead--I have several projects in progress that really don't need all that much to be completed.  And applique is another good road trip project.  I guess it will all depend on what I'm in the mood to do when I get home from work tomorrow night!

Kim, that is just a wonderful quilt! I was going to say adorable, but Valerie beat me to it! I really like the secondary pattern of the yellow, too. Great job.

Your quilt is gorgeous...I am so into patriotic! The curved border might throw me for a loop...I have never done one. If you have any hints please post. Thanks for all of your sharing:)

Even more fabulous than I imagined it would be! With your permission I'd like to save this picture for inspiration as I'd like to do something similar. Do I have your permission?
