All those Allietare Week 4 sets that took me so long to make, will be used to make black star blocks. Here are my 25 sets, laid out and ready for their centres:
Bonnie Hunter's instructions call for 4" squares of our gold fabrics in the centre. I decided to make 4" gold stars instead:
My theory was that with the large variety of gold, taupe and brown fabrics that I've been using, sewing them into stars with a consistent background would give them some uniformity, and hopefully a little pizazz too!
Some of them are quite a bit darker than I expected.
It's funny how my camera sees those blues differently on different days! Anyway, some of these stars are a little risky...
...but I hope they'll be fine in the end!
Now the layout for the 25 star blocks is also done:
It is all darker than I expected, but....I think once the blocks are all sewn together the blues will tie in well to the blue in the red blocks. In any case, I'm not changing my mind now!
I think sewing them together will keep me busy for a while. :D
