Promises To Keep

This is the fabric and pattern my younger son picked out ... ah ... a few years ago right after I finished my oldest son's quilt. Matt is my engineer so he likes solid fabrics and a sharp clean look. I found the mottled gray Stonehenge fabric last year for the background and he does like this, too. As you can see, it is still in the fabric and pattern stage. At the time, after struggling with the quilting on the large batik and black quilt, I think I decided I was intimidated by the diamond shapes in the stars, although they are strip pieced. I have done this type of star before on a smaller scale so it should be no problem now. ;)

So time to cut that fabric and get sewing ... have a happy, quilty day, my friends ... :) Pat
