I added six new wonky stars. These are great to sew if you don't feel up to anything that requires careful measuring or calculation (eg after a ratty day at work). I had some fun with these blocks, using white centres which adds a new dimension. I also tried a string/crumb centre, which I was very excited about in my imagination, but very disappointed about in reality. It looked very heavy and full of seams in the centre of the stars. I loved those little crumbs though so I reused the piece as points on a couple of stars. That was a much more successful effect. I'm enjoying these blues. I have always loved tone on tone blues, and have plenty of strips, even though much of my stash is in storage (that's a long story). Anyway, here are this week's little stars for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge link. Check out everyone else's blues on Angela's page here
Allietare - I finally gave in an admitted that I was going to have to buy more black fabric to make the additional blocks needed for a larger quilt. Yesterday I did that, and it allowed me to get my head into the right space to move forward with this. I've been cutting, cutting, cutting, so that I can get on with making these blocks. I *think* I have nearly cut everything I need. I can't believe how long it took to cut the fabrics for the extra blocks. This is my organised pile of *heedless geese* parts.
This week I will able to come home at sit at my machine without having to figure out what I need to cut and sift through piles of fabric.
