Finish: Vintage Star Wall-Hanging


DH recently fixed some, ahem, issues with our kitchen ceiling.  And I have been slightly inspired to redecorate it a bit – editing, mostly, to go with a vintage vibe.  There is this weird space that needed a custom-sized thingamy.  So I made a quilt, of course.


I love the colors in this one.  Actually fairly composed for me.  I used red for the stars, low-vintage text for the background, and some reproduction and vintage fabrics for the borders, including the yellow from Dreamin’ Vintage line and some greens I had left over from an American Jane Layer Cake.  For the aquas, I used V&Co’s aqua ombre.  Love the fabric and proud that I was composed enough to use a solid-ish fabric.  It really does pull it together.


I quilted it in 1.5″ square crosshatch.  That is a lot of quilting for me, but it gives it a lot of texture and the waffle-pattern goes along with the vintage feel.


I am glad to have this one done.  Pictures of it in-situ if I ever get a decent light to take pictures in my kitchen.  For these, I borrowed the light of a park.
