The center part of the star is based on one of Hillbilly Tonya's Ahhhs which I drew out and then recolored. It had been in this state for a while, but it felt too small and unfinished to be it's own thing and I didn't really want to make a bunch of them this size, so I designed and pieced an outer ring.
Finally, just this week, I finished stitching it into the black background. To this point it's all hand pieced and currently is about 20". I'm going to cut down the black a bit though because I'm going to add a floating 1/4" piano key border (which I'll machine piece). I want the whole thing to finish at 22-23" so that it can go in the miniature category at the shows. It's like my very own rainbow color wheel!
I've also been working quite a bit this week on my orchard quilt (hooray), I got the sky tiles quilted and am working on the trees. Hopefully a post about them on Friday. Happy Wednesday everyone! Linking up with Lee as ever.
