Here's the progress so far.
I got a bag with a bunch of really pretty star blocks in it...
And a pile of super dark blue fabric for the sashing and borders.
So I pressed and measured the blocks. They weren't all the same size but I got the most stacks of 10-1/2 and 11 inch blocks. There's what I'll use for the top!
Out comes the paper for a layout.
Cutting can be scary, especially when you realize you did it wrong. Fortunately, that didn't happen! It's a good thing because this is all the blue I had left when I was done piecing it out. Not much!
So after all that planning, I wound up with four great looking panels.
They will have more blue sashing in between each one and 12" borders on the outer edges.
Do you love it? it has a stained glass window effect with the dark pieces around the light blocks. it really makes them pop! So far, so good! This will be a queen sized quilt when it's done. More to come on this one.
