I have taken a bit of a break from blogging the last few weeks. In fact I have been staying off the computer at home (no such luck at work!!) pretty much. But I wanted to get back into the swing of things and show you one of the projects I have been working on in my 'blog silence'. LOL
So...... what is this you ask?
Here is the start of some liberated star blocks I have been making out of Anna Maria Horner fabrics.. along with others in my stash.
The liberated star blocks are fun! They come from Liberated Quiltmaking II by Gwen Marston. No templates, no matching points - just FUN!
What is really exciting is that with the large funky Horner prints it is hard to tell exactly what the blocks will look like until they are done. In a few cases I realized that there was not enough contrast.... but no worries! It's all good!!
This is a little table topper I made out of just four of the blocks. Not sure what I will do with all the others...... but they are addictive!!! Like chocolates... you never know what you are going to get!
On a more serious note. Thoughts and prayers to the people of The Netherlands and their recent loss. The world mourns with you.
