This year I am entering my Good Luck Star in the Wall Hanging category. This mini quilt wall hanging was made for the SewSewModern 3 swap on Flickr. This group has so much talent! It really challenges my creativity and sewing ability - which I love.
This project is scrappy and paper pieced. I used darker, more saturated colors for the star along with a lighter shade of the same color to off set the swirl and give the star movement.
I then used the lighter shades to make an inside border - if you read my earlier post on this quilt here - you know that this ended up being the most difficult part of the process. I wanted a border with color but something that allowed the star to shine and be the center of attention!

Here is the completed quilt just before sending it off to my swap partner! I just love the Architextures binding - it was the perfect finish for this quilt.
