One of the new makes I referred to in my 2017 plans post is a quilt for my cousin's expected baby.
I mulled over lots of ideas and fabrics for a few months actually, but my mind kept coming back to scrappy. (I think I found it hard to get a 'feel' for what my cousin might like, without asking directly, and I'd like it to be a surprise - sort of). Scrappy wonky stars on a scrappy low volume background sort of forced their way to the forefront of my thoughts and before long I had raided my scraps and stash for fabrics, ready to make a start in the New Year.
I love how wonky stars make up so quickly, though these ones are only made up on the horizontal sections so far the upper and lower points have now yet been stitched in. There's still a lot of piecing to go, but it's good to have made fair progress already. Wonky stars never fail to disappoint me, just hope my cousin will feel the same when/if it's ready to gift to her.
