I'm doing 'string stars 2' from quilters cache for everyone.
Here it is with some of my fabrics:
and with SewHelpMe
's fabrics. My boyfriend said it looked silly with two fabrics as the background, but I kind of like it.
and one for glittergirl94
. Her fabrics have such a happy vibe. Out of the huge pile of fabric, this was the first one I grabbed since it was so cute and bright.
Here is a block for whoopdedoo_5.
I really love her fabrics, but I think the contrast got a little lost in the block. I maybe could have arranged them differently, but I still like it!
and here is jenicat
's block. I am a fan of the black/white/red combo and I really like the high contrast in the block.
and one for Ritapizza
. I LOVE your fabrics for this whole quilt. I'd never have thought to put orange with blue, but I think it's a wonderful combination that I'll be stealing soon
and yet another string star, this one for BertaBerta
. I'm glad she sent lots of fabric so I was able to make the fish face the way I wanted them to. Hooray!
and a string star for j_q_adams
! I apologize for the picture quality, but I promise the block looks better in real life
After a few crazy weeks of being on vacation then starting school, I'm back to sewing! Here's my block for caroDIYnamite
. I really like how this one turned out; the fabrics are lovely! [the block isn't wonky like in the picure]
I finally finished MissDisney'
s block. It looks wonky because I didn't give it a final pressing. The glitter from the pine needles fabric was melting onto my iron and really effed it up, so I opted to stop pressing.
Here's my block with glittergirl94's
other fabric. It got me feeling all autumny Fishie
's block! For some reason, this block went together really fast. I like it.
Here's one for angelbum
. I wish I could've highlighted the little animals more, but some of their heads got cut off
and a block for 1boy1gril2kitty2
. The white is so bright! This was a nice one to work on.
and a Christmas block for Klum78
. yay, Christmas!
and a scrappy block for ajanderson78
Here is my LAST string star (finally!) for Homerof2
. How fun For the people who are in 2 groups with me or sent fabric that logistically didn't work with that crazy block, I am using Carol Doak's book, Simply Sensational 9 Patch Stars. Like everyone else who has this book, I LOVE it.
Here's a block for JQA
. This is unit 8 + unit 21. I didn't want to lose the pretty patterns in the fabrics, so I kept it simple.
and here's a block for ajanderson
. I added the fabric in the center.I think it was units 7 and 37.
Here's a smaller block for athenamat
. It's only 10.5 (10" finished) but I used the cd from the 9-patch book to reduce the pattern size. It's the Iowa block.
Here is another block for Athenamat
. I really wanted to make her a string star, but I didn't think I had enough fabric and didn't want to really screw up! Here's the 'Wisconsin block' though I have no affiliation with Wisconsin besides liking this block!
Here's my block with 1boy1girl1kitty2
's cowboy fabrics. I already traded her all my cowboy fabrics, otherwise I'd have thrown some of mine in there
I DID however, use the leaf print which I got from Missdisney
Here is Audrey's block. I ended up really liking this block in the end, though I was really doubting my placement, etc. the whole time. I used MissDisney's leaf print again as I needed a whole lot more green fabric because of the paper piecing than it looks like. Paper piecing is so annoying, but for some reason I still love it!
okay! That's all for me!
