Giant Wonky Star Quilt

giant wonky start quiltI may have finished a quilt top yesterday. I wish I'd had enough fabric to make it 20% larger, so now I need to decide if I'm done at 48" x 48" or if I want to add one or two borders to get it to 60" by 60".

Wonky Star Astronomical Quilt Block

On Tuesday I made this quilt block for the Astronomical Quilts challenge and mailed it off. But I really kinda loved it. I had 2-3 yards of each fabric that I had used, so I could definitely recreate it, but I have a lot of projects on my to do list. And I've really been loving the giant one block quilts I've been seeing, so I decided I could easily justify starting another project if it was just gonna be a quick giant block. Well, I started it Wednesday and finished it Thursday. It's totally a project that could be done in a day, including quilting. If, ya know, you weren't also taking care of a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old. ;-) I love it. I don't know what I'm going to do with it. For now I'll just keep staring adoringly at it. And trying to think of a name*. And I think I might need to take it shopping with me to see if we can find some border fabric that it likes.

*Speaking of naming it, I'm trying to get good at naming quilts so I'll refrain from calling this one "Giant Wonky Star." And as you may know, "Frieda" is already taken. :-)
