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.

Love your liberated stars Debra , the fabrics are so good in it.ReplyDelete
Yes, love the fabrics and the surprises they produce. I usually don't use such large prints.. but I have discovered Anna Maria Horner prints and love them.Delete
Quite wonderful. I think the low contrast stars will work well overall in a quilt. And by the way, when I come to your blog I still wonder why the sidebar has a picture of my cat sleeping. :)ReplyDelete
LOL! Yes, they could be twins! Thanks - I will continue to post my progress on the stars. Thanks for stopping by and pets to Tommy!Delete
YOur blocks are definitely "all good."ReplyDelete
