Once I had my assignment and the color preferences (anything but purple and pink), I went into the fabric room and inspiration struck. I had various solid scraps and thought it would be neat to do three stars on the diagonal in ombre shades of blue. I'd go from dark blue, to medium blue, to a light blue.
I figured out my sizes, cut my first blocks to stitch and attempted a wonky star. EPIC FAIL followed by frustration
Back to the drawing board. I thought maybe I was going for too much this first time out. I was cocky and it had not worked out. I figured I would just try a larger wonky star. Yeah. That really worked out.
|It looks like some type of alien life form.|
Today, I revisited the wonky star and with some patience and creative seaming...I feel pretty proud of my final block. The block I originally wanted to make.
But seriously....that green "star." It's slightly mesmerizing..no?
|A case of before and after. I feel like the green one wants to hurt me.|
