As of today (January 8, 2013), I have nearly completed the quilt top! All 26 of the stars are sewn into blocks, and surrounded by background fabric, which is a beautiful dark blue indigo batik fabric that evokes the night sky. I thought it was a perfect “home” for the stars to float in.
I did have to purchase this blue fabric (as I did not have enough of the pale blue batik to make a complete top). But I’ve fallen in love with it, which allows me to relax my rule of sourcing and sewing only from my “stash.”
In other new (GOOD NEWS!), I have raised nearly $2500— halfway to my goal of $5000! I am realizing that I will likely not reach my goal by next Monday. So I’ve been deliberating with myself about extending the deadline.
