Hello Friends! I hope you are well. Today I am sharing with you my Urban Stars quilt to kick off 2014 at Ivory Spring! Urban Stars is featured in the current issue (Winter 2014) of Quilt Trends magazine. Quilt kit can be purchased here.
If you remember my stint with using gray in my quilts from last year, Urban Stars is one of the “gray” quilts. I am happy that I am now able to show you the entire quilt.
I like the contrast between the gray and the white patches in the quilt. I was quite surprised, but immensely pleased by the effect of using two solids together side by side.
And the blocks are the ever popular traditional sawtooth star blocks, but taken on a “fresh” makeover with the Art Gallery fabrics I used. The fabric collections represented in Urban Stars are Color Me Retro, Textures, Urban Mod and Pure Elements.
I like the extra perk the effect seems to have of using prints on a gray/white background in Urban Stars. Have you had similar experiences in which you are surprised by the effect of unusual color combinations?
Thanks so much for visiting. Things remain a bit on the hectic side at Ivory Spring. But please know that I always appreciate hearing from you. Have a great weekend, Dear Friends.
