We all have to pick a colour scheme and make a centre block for our quilts - a star. We have to do that this month. I sat and pulled fabrics like it was an Olympic sport.
I am aiming for blues in rich tones and navys, pinks in all sorts of tones, low volume as the background and touches of lime to throw in some more interest. I have debated adding in citrus colours rather than just lime. But the above palette is what I am going with at the moment.
The star is flummoxing me though. I was thinking of doing a star within a star within a star. I have the first two stars done and suddenly I do not think it is nearly exciting enough.
I think I may sit with pencil and paper tonight and see if inspiration hits me. The best stars are all foundation paper pieced and we all know that I am not going there again for a long time. I am contemplating trying to design an epp star.
Anyone have any good ideas they would like to point me in the direction of? Or should I add on the third star, in pink, on the above block and be done with it. It does resemble me - simple. Slightly wonky. But bright and cheerful.
