I dug in to my fabric to day and this is what I got so far.

I kinda like it. I am a bit short on the background fabric but I know where to get more! ;-)

I am thinking 3 stars in widht and maybe 4 stars long. I have not decided on borders yet.
Maybe I skip them. will see.

I got 2 block ready and the third one on the go.

What you think ?

Those look great, Annika! That quilt will go together quickly with the stars as big as they are. Nice to see that you aren't afraid to cut into your fabrics. :)

Thank you!

I am rather pleasd with how it is comming thogheter.

I will not snowball the corners as jenny did but I will use the sashing and the cornerstone.

And I will probebly not use a border. I think it will be to big for me to handle then when it is time for the quilting.

I think I will use a very dark brownish fabric for the binding..

It is so pretty! You sound like you have great plans for completing it.

I think they are wonderful. I love browns.

I am not normally a fan of brown but I really like this. I love that it's only three colors. Can't wait to see it done!

This is going to be stunning. And the block does work up fairly fast, so you'll be done in no time!
I sure hope you can get your hands on more background fabric.
Beautiful job!

Looking good. I have the material here to do mine but not till the fall. Got too many other "projects" to finish first.
