Sewing Sunday

Months ago I sorted out the fabrics for the "Shades of..." journal quilts, and on Sunday I got out the yellow bag to lay out colours, for when I had a little spare time and wanted to get on with them (or needed diversion from something more urgent?) -
I didn't mean to start sewing, but somehow at the end of the day they were all done; perhaps it was the encouragment of the blue sky outside and the optimism of the spring weather -
Like the red ones, these bring to mind "sunrise" on alien planets - dark stars appearing over the horizon. Adding the black satinstitch borders might change that?

Wonderful effect! As you say, having the dots 'appearing' over the horizon turns them from spots into suns. Beautiful!
