This quilt has become addictive. I've been on a mission, arranging and rearranging the strips into pleasing combinations of color while making this intricate block. I haven't sewn the stars together yet.
I'm going to make all of the stars, and all of the log cabins, then move them all around to see what combinations look the best.
Teal is a hard color to find.....and I need more teal.
Whenever I do any strip piecing, I get the old pasta dryer out of the closet.
It can hold hundreds of strips, takes up very little room, and I can see exactly what I have to choose from.
When I'm done, there will be sixteen, 20" blocks. I have to stop working on this one, but I've had so much fun! Can you tell my quilt is leaning toward an Autumn colorway.
The blocks will be connected by four log cabin blocks. This is another opportunity to incorporate more color.....too much fun!
I did some more machine quilting yesterday on Buttonwood. I'll try to tear myself away from the stars and concentrate on machine quilting today. There are just too many things that I want to make and do and not enough hours in the day.
