A Golden Finish – Aurous!

Golden hexies

Another quilt top off the hanger! This quilt was started long ago, challenged me in many ways, was completed and hung “to dry.”  I collected a variety of metallic Asian prints and used the gold fabric to bring out their beauty.  The black stars were a suggestion by a quilting guru friend. It was a pain, but glad to have taken her suggestion.  Thank you Laurie!  I was inspired to finally get this quilted and decided to do this one in a continuous circle.  Meet: Aurous (containing gold.)

The completed circles were quilted with black thread and the partial circles were quilted with a gold thread.

Having completed this quilt, I’m feeling accomplished! Being home seven days a week has certainly made a difference in my quilt studio. And yes, there were more masks made. There will probably be more that I’ll make, but not today. The warmer weather has me here:

I’d love to know what you have all been busiest with. Until next week, stay safe, happy & healthy!
