A fairly traditional block, just a square and half-square triangles. I'm using stash fabrics that are mostly fat quarters that have been cut into so I only have enough for a square and then a bit left over to make strips or smaller squarees for future scrap quilts. This goes together so quickly and easily that I've made up some for the block of the month for Feburary for the Bayberry guild.
These are on my design wall, abutted to one another but when I stand back the stars disappear and I get a jumble of squares that confuses the eye. So the quilt will be put together with white sashing between the blocks, then the stars will be prominent. I'm use somewhat grayed tones, nothing really bright, so it will have a sweet old fashioned feel -- although the white stripping may seem to put it into the "modern" category. Category doesn't matter, I'm using scrapes, I enjoy the almost automatic sewing and I need to have a stash of two or three completed quilts that are basically utility quilts that can be give to charities when disasters happen and our guild offers to send quilts.
This strip quilt was made using drier sheet as the foundation. This quick and easy method is always fun because I can choose exactly which piece comes next but will always be surprised when I put several together and see the patterns formed.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
