Going around in circles
In 5 days, we will be without a kitchen... and I don't know how long for. Hopefully as little time as possible, but who knows.... So yesterday afternoon our kitchen was transformed into a restaurant's one. I managed to cook about 12 meals to put in the freezer for the next few weeks when we will be left with just a microwave and a toaster more or less. Industrious cooking was and still is on the agenda before we pack up the whole kitchen ready for the new one to be put in. I am starting to run out of space in the freezer though so I think I am reaching the limits of what I can prepare. Anyway enough of that for now, let's get back to some fabric play!
I made it for for the Modern She Made Swap. I didn't have a cushion insert big enough so my cushion looks slightly flat, until I took this picture at an angle of the quilting where it looks like there is a peak in the middle!
I had pieced the star a little while ago, using the same twisting star I used for the [3x6] Mini sampler quilt swap, I added a plain border to the star to frame it. And deciding to "go around in circles" to quilt it. I wanted to try a circular design for the quilting and quilt a big spiral starting from the centre of the block. This was my first try at spiralling and I really liked quilting it and also the way it looked once finished.
