On My Design Wall
I love the blocks on my design wall! I think that this could actually be a jumping off point for another quilt idea. I may have to revisit this later because I think it would be another beautiful quilt! This is obviously a very scrappy quilt but even then I was a little hesitant to include the bright fabrics but I am glad I did. It seems to be adding a bit of sparkle and I quite like it. :) To be honest, unless the aim is controlled scrappy, I think everything can and should be included.
It didn't take long for those star blocks to turn into these.
It took just one sewing session to get the outer triangles onto the stars because I had them already cut and ready to be stitched on. I first added opposite corners to the stars and then I needed to give the very large dog ears a trim before I added the last two corners. It was a very quick process to remove the dog ears because I just snipped them off with my scissors as I went.
Now that the center stars are complete I need to start putting the hst block borders together and get them attached. This quilt is coming together one step at a time and I love the results so far!
