When I set out to make another version of the Star Light, Star Dark Quilt for the QAL (quilt-a-long - which runs through Oct. 4!), I wanted to make the complete opposite of my cool color version, "Illuminate." And I'm star-struck (I wrote that out and then realized it was punny, but I'm leaving it). I've already started quilting it and I can't wait to show you more! It also helps that I've decided who to gift it to; I've been really inspired to work on it.
Fat Quarter Shop, interspersed with some of my own fabrics (the bundle is still available for purchase; FQS provided me with my own). The keys to a great SLSD quilt are using tone-on-tone fabrics and creating contrast within a color (which I went into detail about in this post).
By the way, on Monday and during next week, check back to see a linky party of progress on all the great SLSD quilts out there - just WOW! You can see some of them right now on the #starlightstardarkqal hashtag on Instagram, or in the Quilty Habit Facebook group (which is for all QH readers!).
For quilt names, I'm thinking of "Incandescence," "Blaze," and "Invigorate" (somewhat like "Illuminate"). Help me out and vote - which one do you like best? Or can you think of another option? I'm partial to the third choice, but I keep waffling. :)
