When I cut units for my new project, I cut enough extra to make a practice block. I think it was good idea. I spent several hours today reviewing how to sew set-in seams and now I just about have the hang of it. The next blocks shouldn’t take as long to make (I hope). As a bonus, I have a fun scrappy bonus block.
After finishing this block I toyed with the idea of mixing up all my prepared units to make all the blocks scrappy, but I chickened out. The blocks for the runner I’m planning will be much more matchy-matchy, most with only three fabrics. The exuberant block above will become a little wall quilt though. I have a small bit of wall that is just calling out for it.
That block is gorgeous! It radiates joy! I don't know what you have in mind, but a whole totally scrappy quilt from those fabrics would be one happy quilt! I love it! ---"Love"ReplyDelete
I love the scrappy star!!! It will make a wonderful wall hanging - it's so much fun to see something bright on a wall. I can't wait to see your match stars! I've never made those and don't have any desire to do so right now, but maybe someday in the future.ReplyDelete
I love that! How did you do it? Pattern? Special ruler?ReplyDelete
I love the scrappy practice block! Clever how you did the image like a polarid. Your blog header looks terrific too!ReplyDelete
That block is wonderful! Keep practicing and you'll have a whole quilt! But I'm curious how the matchy stars will look too so I hope you can share soon!ReplyDelete
