I've had this fabric set aside in a bundle since before CT was born (she's 4 now), and I think in all that time I've planned about 10 different quilts for 10 different reasons for it. Mainly, the bundle grew up around the background scooter fabric which I bought just because it was fun. There were a few other fabrics in the mix but my new plan for the fabrics has whittled it down to these initially.
Time to make a Giant Star quilt!!
Using the In Colour Order tutorial (but adjusting my sizes to suit the sizes of my fabric pieces) I have cut this fun Giant Star. I'm really looking forward to working on it. It might be one of the projects I take along to retreat in a few weeks' time. Giving myself options. You know, because I don't have enough WIPs to choose from already ;-)
ETA - I've just read this published post and noticed my glaring mistake! I need to remember to re-order those red and green star points in the top left corner before I stitch them up - what a numpty!!
It's going to be a beauty! Take it to the retreat and nominate a friend to remind you to swap the green and red points over and check they're all correct before you sew the final seams...ReplyDelete
