Summer Solstice Quilt – Back in the Game!

Another Star

Big Red finally came back from her tune-up, and she purrs! Needless to say, I’ve been enjoying my sewing time especially much. Good thing too because I have a lot of gifts that need making between now and Christmas — time to put the sewing pedal to the metal!

Two Color Star

First up? My Summer Solstice Quilt! I pieced two more stars for my Summer Solstice Quilt — “Two Colors Star” and “Another Star.” I had the hardest time picking the colors for “Another Star,” but in the end I decided to give it an extra pop with the gold and yellow tips. I also like how the extra yellow separates this star from the rest of the pack.

And while I really like the “Two Colors Star,” I think it will look better on the back of the quilt. I’ll replace it with the “Whirling Star” (also from the Solstice Stars Series) on the front. With any luck I’ll be able to piece the LAST star this weekend, but that hasn’t stopped me from playing around with mock quilt tops. There are so many choices!

Or do I get really fancy, and try some highlights?

If this quilt were for me, I would probably go with a teal or aqua color scheme… but I think my sister and her husband are more grey and navy folks. So, I’m leaning towards the grey and navy with teal highlights… or maybe gold highlights? Argh! It’s so hard to choose! What do you guys think?

    I love the grey and navy with teal highlights! That was my vote before I even saw that that was how you were already leaning.

    Beautiful quilt! The teal and navy is my favorite, second is the one with grey highlights.

    They are all wonderful! Did you try teal and navy with gold highlights? I think the gold highlights really compliment the blocks well. I really love the quilt designs!

    You’ve probably chosen by now, but I had to chime in! I love the highlights, and of those two, I really like the grey/navy with teal. On the other hand, the teal/aqua looked so fresh! Maybe that with navy or grey highlights?

    I don’t think you can go wrong. 🙂
