I finished off two test blocks today. They went pretty well, but I learned a few things. First, you need to carefully choose your scraps so that the fabric is a color. Stating the obvious, I know, but do you see that small pink star above? For two points I chose a white fabric with a pink print but when it was used in the block, there wasn't enough contrast to see the point. I will replace that little star tonight.
Second, if you go too tall with your points or they will be cropped when you piece the blocks together. There is one point cropped in the blue star and one that will be cropped as soon as I join this block to the next. So it goes - live and learn. Do you see the little red star here? I did better on try two :)
Anyway, I think this will make a fantastic quilt. I will put these blocks into the quilt top with different orientations so the stars are scattered. I will make a few large 12.5 inch wonky stars as well to add a little variety. Can not wait to see this top finished off!
