This quilt was inspired by a quilt I saw on Pinterest awhile back (seen here: http://talesofineptitude.blogspot.com/2013/11/finished-quilt-and-bad-pictures.html). It probably wouldn't have gone past a mere appreciation of her quilt, except that I fell in love with the "Little Black Dress 2" fabric line by BasicGrey for Moda.
None of the fabrics were individually what I would normally pick for my stash, but all combined they were irresistible. So, of course, I had to come up with a project that suited them and make a whole quilt!
Good Morning Starshine was the perfect inspiration, because I could simply alternate the black and tan. An added visual bonus was that I could put the grey in the black rows towards the outside of the quilt and make it seem to trail off.
If I did it again, I might offset the star just a little more to the left for a more dramatic effect. Spencer keeps trying to center it on the bed because he never noticed the offset. But otherwise I really love this quilt! I also think it might be a favorite of Spencer's.
