Sewalittle Saturday

I have to say a *big* thank you to everyone who has left lovely comments about my wonky stars. It is so encouraging to receive them. I only got a couple of whole blocks and a some part blocks made during the week, so I played catch up today and now have have a dozen new blocks to share.  What do you think about the on point look?  It seems to make them look particularly wonky.
Here's my little supply of "star parts" ready to go.  This should be plenty to see me through to the end of the month. I'm not sure I'll be able to stop making blue stars when Angela at Scrap Happy changes the colour for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for February.  I love seeing all the blue goodness everyone has been sewing on weekly linkup, here.


My Garden House quilt saw some needle time today too and I added three of these blocks.  I photographed all of them because I wanted to see the effects of the different fabric combinations.  I need 17 of these for the quilt.  They seem to take forever to make!  My favourite is the one with the red stripes.

  2. Set on point does give those Wonky Stars a whole new look, doesn't it? Maybe you will have to make two quilts!

  4. I like the on point look, but I usually prefer on point settings anyway, so take my opinion with a grain of salt!

  5. Wonky Stars are always fun! I don't usually like them on point, but yours have nice, long "arms" and I think that changes how they look on point - go for it!

  6. cute blue stars. yes, on point makes them look much more wonky- funny... I like them that way, though...

  7. Your stars look great on point, it is all about the look you are going for. They do seem spikier that way.

  8. Your wonky stars are great -- looks like there will be more (based on the prepared parts).
