Sun, Moon and Stars

A rainy day seems like a good time to start a quilt with a happy palette. I've used these fabrics before, and love working with these colors. 

I've always wanted to use the "Storm at Sea" pattern, and it really lends itself to a two-color quilt.

The fabric with the sun, moon and stars will be the focus fabric, and will also be a border.

This will be a small wall quilt for a birthday present, for someone who loves the sun motif.

I am doing this with a foundation piecing pattern; I really enjoy using foundation piecing, because it forces me to be very accurate, something that doesn't come naturally to me.

Anyway, working with these colors should make this rainy season a little more fun.
