October was Shelley's month in the Fresh Modern Bee. I was sent these LURVELY fabrics to work with. I had been wishing to see that middle print in real life and now I'm craving some for myself. (The one just left of the bikes) A small piece of that bike fabric already lives at my home, or else I'd be drooling over that one too!
She asked for a 16.5" block with any kind of star. She had some great inspiration photos for us, and I immediately was drawn to to the circle ones. Me loves circles. Me also loves paper piecing. (In small amounts). I would go entirely crazy making a whole quilt like this. But one block? Fun! Fun!
The seams do get a little bulky, and I'm a little bummed about the color placement I used. The outside ring of points simply doesn't stand out enough and I wish I'd rather used the dark green on the outside. But there's no such thing as perfect in quilting is there? And I really do love this block anyway!
