Thanks! I'm trying to dwindle down my "brights" tub.
Shooting stars love it!
This first one looks like a shooting star. Haven't that block before. Nice.
And fortunately you have lots of black for contrast. Both of those are nice quilts.
Thanks! got a whole bolt of back from Marshalls Dry Goods and am quite satisfied with it.
I use a lot of black also to set off my brights. Never thought of buying a bolt. Good idea.
I finally went to buying a whole bolt because I had several big pieces of different blacks and they don't always play together well. Now I don't have to worry about having enough of the same black.
I used to buy bolts of Kona black some years back. I should get another bolt because like you said the shade from bolt to bolt is different. I once heard that the overdye other colors so I bleached some of my black scraps, some bleached to light green and some to light orange.....no wonder they were different.
Last night I finished a Christmas quilt that was more than 2 years in the making. By Fall 2021 I had the top put together and planned to give it to my sister for Christmas. I had sent it to Carrie to quilt but was overcome by events and didn't get it bound in time for Christmas so I picked it up a couple weeks ago and finished the binding. It still needs a label but I have plenty of time for that. Hope she likes it.
