Stars: Marlon Brando Is Finished

The Marlon Brando block is finished and surrounded by the black sashing and one of the three borders.  Hurrah!  The photo shows as much of the entire piece as I can squeeze onto the scanner bed for a good look.  Pretty soon I'm going to have to use the digital camera to give you an overview of this piece as it develops.  It is going faster than I thought it would but the quilt blocks themselves are addicting as I can't wait to see how each one looks in my colors and threads.

Sara Leigh's version of Stars (it is the Peacock colorway from the various recommendations in the Stars book) keeps getting more beautiful.  Her's is bright and cheerful while mine is more muted.

Now it's time to start a new painted canvas.  Hurrah again!

  1. Each succeeding one is playing off all the colors you have used in the above! Excellent!

  2. Mostly that is the designer's fault, not mine! LOL

    There does seem to be a good color balance so far. It's my job to try to continue that if I have to change threads around a bit to make the stitch look good with the threads I have.
