Another scrappy star row was added to the Scrappy Star quilt and I seem to be doing only one row at a time and then I get tired of it – I think this will be hanging around for another week before I get all the rows put together.
Chain Piecing – while it does go fast – it is boring!
3 rows now put together.
A close up of the coneflower on Midnight Garden so you that asked can see the background fabric better. A very pretty purple batik – this will make 4 blocks I think – maybe 5 and then I have a dark blue batik also to use – I hope I have enough – I might have to piece the center block and have it half and half! The stitches aren’t perfect and I should have traded that very light pink wool out for another one as soon as I cut it out – that one was a repurposed wool piece that was given to me and while I admire those that stick with that type of wool to me it is too thin and I really think – even though pricey – I love the hand dyed wool so much more – it is thicker and consistent – a joy to work with where as that light pink and a few other pieces I have used since getting it have been thin, frayed, and at times had a smell to it. I think I will be a picky wool applique from now on. All the rest of this piece has the hand dyed wool in it and I love it. It is what I used in the Postage Stamp quilt border and really enjoyed it.
