As always I posted tons of pictures! (btw, is that poor etiquette?)
these sampler blocks drained my brain....trying to figure out what would look good in each different one!
and I really don't know what I was doing here, playing mostly, using my new ruler, Quilter's Groove 1/16" (from Lisa Calle).
So an interesting thing happened with the center, as I was sewing this "flower" and coming back to the pieced center, it kept separating the fabric pieces. I appliqued a circle into the center and Voila! looks nice. And while this is eh,eh, so-so of a design, I really don't like the puffiness and would do something different next time, like maybe bringing the crosshatching all the out...ah well, live and learn
I did like the outer border! :)
Ta-Da! The center star. I matched the circle applique fabric in the center and also appliqued center circles to the outer 4 squares so it looked like an intentional design
Thanks for stopping by and have a good day!
