And here we are–almost completed with the Year of Making Frivols, with quilt #11, titled, Stars of Night, Lend their Light (quilt #213).  It’s the largest Frivols yet, finishing at about 55″ square. And yes–it used up all the fabric.  I supplemented it with white Grunge Dots from Moda.

The Quilting-in-Process photo

After pinning up the quilt, I knew I wanted to do star points in the stars, but what about the background?  I decided to experiement, making a circle, then stitching around it three times, then echoing it and rolling off into another center circle. Headphones are for listening to a Bruno, Chief of Police book; this time it was The Resistance Man.

Realizing that all my quilt pictures are around my house, and in my garden, I took it over to the Universide of California-Riverside, where my husband-quilt holder works as a professor, jumped out the car and we quickly took several photos while I was in the Passenger Pick-up Zone.  The motto for UCR (how we abbreviate it) is Fiat Lux, or Let There Be Light, so I springboarded off that idea to arrive at the title for this quilt.

I really really like the back, with those pointy stars floating among all those bubbly circles.

The Back of the Chevy photo

Because I wanted the setting sun to provide the light, it also meant that our streets were clogged with traffic, spilling off the freeways (welcome to Southern California).  So in meandering home, I spotted this perfectly turquoise Chevrolet pick up: perfect place for a quilt photo.  It’s fun to step out of the garden and get some different photos of quilts.
