Design Floor on Monday Nov 8

 The end of a year always makes me want to cross things off the list so that I can start new projects with the new year.  Spinning Stars was one of the projects I started near the beginning of last year.  I'm glad I wrote down a plan or I never would have remembered exactly how it was supposed to come together. 
My plan calls for 3.5 inch strips between the quadrants and then all the way around before a double border of four patches.  I've got the four patches all ready to go, so I just need to decide on a color for the strips.  I think I know what I want, but could use some votes.  Beige or green, which one looks better?

green speaks to me too.

Love the design notebook. I should copy you and start doing that every time I start something new. (Which recently, hasn't been all that often...but I will on Wednesday!)

Keep plugging away at this -- you can finish it! Go girl, go! (little cheerleading to keep you motivated) B

ooh ooh! Call on me! :::waving hands in the air!::: I pick....GREEN! it picks up the green in the stars. The beige seems to fade away...love it! Think this should be on my quilt bucket list. Gee that list is getting long. Guess I will be here awhile! HA!

Definately green!
You are so organized to write down your ideas in a book...I'm going to try to do that!

Beautiful spinning stars! I like the green best too.

After a couple of experiences of having a great idea and not writing it down, I always either write it in a notebook or keep my design plan with the fabric and pattern I plan to use. Save a lot of frustration.

Donna said...

Oh, I like the green best. The beige seems to be washed out but the green is dramatic.

Diane said...

it's beautiful and I'd go with green too.

That is gorgeous!

You must be tickled pink with it.

Janet said...

I like the green. This is a really neat quilt. Love the movement of it.

Behind on my blog reading...this is looking great! I really want to make one of these and printed out Amy's directions...now after seeing it this way I might just copy this! (Hope you don't mind!) I need to get on that!
