Posting a quick picture of my Star Surround blocks this morning. I decided late to join in on this quiltalong and had to rush selecting and cutting fabrics before heading out to spend a couple of weeks with my mama. Here are my blocks laid out on her front porch.
Mama thinks my blocks are really pretty, especially the two pink and yellow ones on the top left. She likes pastels. I like that I'm using stuff thats been in my stash forever. I think the blocks are prettier than the picture looks. I enjoyed learning the method for making the no waste flying geese but have to admit I'm a little worried about how they'll fit with the star centers as they were definitely not perfect. We'll see how it goes. I'm home now with lots of clean up to do after leaving hubby unattended for two weeks!
Forgot to mention that I've linked up with Melissa at Happy Quilting...of course, since it's her quiltalong! And Judy's Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times. And WIP Wednesday, while I'm at it!
