Starry Eyed by Caroline Fairbanks-Critchfield, 2014

This quilt is both improvisational and organized. We know that life runs smoother with organization, and yet many times improvisation rules the moment. When designing this quilt I tried to balance the improvisationally pieced stars with a clear sense of organization in their placement on the quilt top. Even within the star blocks, fabric strips were randomly chosen from a pile for the star centers while the cream colored diamonds were a constant. We need both constancy and happy surprises to round out each day. Palm Bay, Florida, United States 44" x 50"
