Joyfully sharing my quilting journey and other bits and pieces that make up daily life.

I got the blocks sewn together and I love it! It so surprising to me that a minor change to a simple star block can make such a huge difference in the overall look of the top. I just love the secondary design that those little corner strips make. I like it so much that I may need to make a full sized quilt using this block design. I think it would be really fun to explore different colour placement too - like changing up the colour in the hst blocks that look like satellites around the center square.
When I sewed the blocks together I did have a few minor mismatches but I don't need perfection...I am very happy with the way it looks. I had hoped to put the borders on yesterday as well but my eldest son has come home for a visit so I have been spending time with him instead of in my sewing room - I do have my priorities :).
