Summer Sampler #7
Boy; I am really wishing I had arranged these fabrics differently for this quilt...this is the first time I have put so many prints together like this...as a rule I would have a white background for all of these. But I decided to get out of my comfort zone and try something different...not liking it at all...lol.
Besides my planning; it is going well...this block is the string star..and it was very easy to do; though I don't like a string star ...if you look on my work website; you will see a very large one on there that I did..hated doing it!!! But at least it stands out..hahaha.
Anyway; enough griping; I put them together this way; don't like them, but it is done. So I'll live with it, right?????....Have fun putting yours together. And if it helps; I cut 3.5 inch strips for each triangle, and used the Tri Tool to flip and cut each one.
Without further ado...lol here is mine; if you can see the star...lol.
One day I am going to do this whole thing over in a solid background..I am sure I will like it much better....
I wanted to share these 2 pics with you...they belong to a lady whom I am hand quilting a quilt for. This is one that she had machine quilted...because of the fabrics it couldn't be hand quilted....it is one of the most beautiful quilts I have seen...take a look..the pic on the right is just one block...the left is around the center of the quilt...
