Project Quilting Focus Through the Prism (June): Yellow Friendship Star

28 06 2015

june imageIt’s the second month of the color challenge Focus Through the Prism. The block is Friendship Star and I picked the yellow Cherrywood fabric.       There was another panel in my stash that was asking to be cut up, so I complied and made it the background. There isn’t a before picture, but here is what was remainingimage.

I also used some hand dyed vintage yellow fabrics from Debby Henning at Zebra Arts.

I sent my quilt off to Marcia Wachuta and it returned really fast looking AMAZING!!  I really like what she did with the stitching. image It’s hard to tell in the pictures, but she made the center physically pop out of the quilt surface. imageI’m a convert and will be sending many more quilts her way.       The idea behind the quilt design stemmed from the Friendship Star and thoughts of my friends:  different circles, some closer, some more distant, all unique, all colorful, always dynamic.

After adding a yellow and orange Suzy’s Magic Binding, this month’s project is complete!
