Pieced Star in Stars
I've finally pieced the star in star blocks that I won at a Guild meeting several months ago (see here and here).
For awhile I played with the idea of adding white or black/grey strips and then cutting the block on an angle so the stars became 'wonky' (see below). This was to get around the problem that quite a few of the blocks were different sizes!
I couldn't decided between using white or a grey, so the blocks rested while I worked on other projects. Recently I revisited them, randomly adding black or grey strips. Then cutting the blocks to a uniform size before joining them. I did ponder (briefly) about adding half stars in the outside spaces.
The piece will now rest some more as I go back to working on other projects. Also I don't have anyone in mind for this quilt let alone how to quilt it.
