Appliqueing Star Dance

The first applique corner of Star Dance is  finished. All four corners will have the same design but I'll use different fabrics for the stars and circle centers.

I am making a lot of extra circles. When the applique is finished, the extra circles will be added randomly to the border. I think the applique design is rather sparse and needs some extra zing. I might change my mind when the borders are finished. 

The pieced 4" finished stars were made in 2017 as a  RSC project. I decided to finish this quilt first before I start another RSC project.

  3. Applique is such a nice finishing touch for a border. The first corner is beautiful. There is plenty of time for the quilt to decide whether or not it needs those extra circles. If not, they are sure to find a home somewhere.
