Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Slow Sunday Stitching

Last Sunday I posted a picture of my next Hand stitched EPPing project that I wanted to start. I was hoping to find fabrics in my stash that were similar to my Electric Quilt drawing, since I really liked the bright blue and orange. I didn’t have anything in my stash like the bright blue, and since I wanted to keep this as a stash project, I ended up with a plan B. I kept the purple and the yellow, but went with dark blue and red instead of the bright blue and orange. I’ve gotten one of the star units finished, and I think I like it better than the original concept colours. It isn’t as bright and knock you over the head as the original. I’m still really enjoying playing with the stars made out of the kite shapes. This particular design, in keeping with the constellation star theme, is going to be called Leo’s Mane.

  1. This is going to be beautiful when it is all said and done! The colors are stunning!

  2. This is much richer looking than the in-your-face colours of your original plan - even though there's a time and place for in-your-face...!

  3. Well done with using your stash fabric. This is really pretty.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
