This quilt is truly Star Crazy because:
1) It's all about stars
2) It's CRAZY because I didn't pick out any of the fabrics.
Last year my sister informed me that her quilt shop was going out of business (so sad). Anyway, I told her to buy me a bunch of the discounted fabric. Because I love ALL colors, I told her not to worry about what she bought as long as she liked it.
Furthermore, my sister-in-law told me about a fabric sale over in her neck of the woods. I also asked her to purchase some fabric for me. Wala, many of the fabrics went together in the same color scheme and autumn colors to boot (I LOVE autumn colors).
I decided to use ONLY fabrics in my stash to make this quilt. In order to make it work I had to be a little creative with color placement. I'll be making all of the little stars with gold backgrounds. Also, all of my large stars will have a somewhat "busy" background. I did this in lou of purchasing 10 1/2 yards of background fabric.
The busy backgrounds will make the quilt look very "old fashioned" hence the name "Granny Went Star Crazy".
