I love Alyssa and Pile O Fabric’s Skill Builder BOM – so there was no way I could not do this years. How awesome is the design for Technicolor Galaxy?
So I did my original colour sheet – all rainbow, and was pulling my fabric to audition colours (OK I may have bought some Alison Glass specifically for this project) and then I came across some yardage in my stash from Anna Maria Goodfolks that I was saving for something special. And then I got thinking that fussy cutting it might be perfect for this project. So I took the leap and did the middle circle in the fabric.
(and sorry about the grainy photos)
and then of course I had to replan the entire quilt colours and of course it had to be all Anna Maria. I actually don’t have much Anna Maria in my stash (now remedied) and I asked the girls of the GWSMQG if they were willing to destash any scraps. I love those girls so much – they totally came through with some awesome scraps for my project – some quite rare as well!
So I have gone with a Blue/Grey, Orange/Red, Pink/Purple Colour Scheme.
My star points
And I could not let my original fabric pull go to waste – so I made another center piece. This time I quilted it with some insulBrite in it so it could be used as a heated table placemat/runner. I gifted it to Hayley, one of the girls in my Aussie Handmade Birthday Club.
