And Now I Have Stars

A bit of surgery and look what I ended up with.

STARS. Two giant stars. They aren’t sewn together yet but you can see somewhat how they are going to look.

I took one of my 25 patch blocks from each color set and sliced it diagonally down the center.

I like the color arrangement of the star on the left. Not so much the one on the right. I think the green looks dull. Could use a sprinkling of some “pop.” I think I am going to redo the entire block. I have some more interesting green fabrics in my stash. Or I could use the yellow ones. Though I wasn’t happy with the color arrangement.

Now, I have to decide what to use to fill in the open spaces. I have a few ideas. We shall see where those ideas take me.

Stay tuned…

My 2nd Quilted Star is Finished

Yay!! No. 2 is finished.

This is the back. And I have a bunch more lined up to finish or to begin. I have gone Star Crazy!!

This next one just needs to be sewn to the white inside lining. (I am doing this one a bit different than the others.) And I may reverse the last two rounds. I think I like the dark navy for the last round. In fact I cut them as 6″ squares and they were SUPPOSED to be the last round. I goofed.

This one needs to be sewn and the edging added. I bought these fabric squares (in the last round) on eBay a couple years ago. Look really close at the layout. Anything pop out at you? They are the same fabric patterns but in different colors. Directly across from the other. How cool is that!! I was really lucky to find these eight in the bunch.

Here’s more fabric. Just waiting their turn. Wanna-Be Stars.

And I have an idea for a Barbie star using royal, pink and yellow Barbie fabric. Or I may make it as a little quilt for a Barbie doll. Ideas, ideas. Always thinking.

Who knows how many I will have when I finally tire of making them. 😀
