I've been watching the Stars in a Time Warp series since the beginning, but I don't have much in the way of Civil War reproductions, so was unable to play along. But sawtooth stars are one of my favorite blocks (okay, okay, I admit I have a lot of favorite blocks...), so I decided to just make a few with fabrics I do have and like.
There, one itch scratched.
Another Sister's Choice block also got made, because someday I want to make a Sister's Choice quilt. But every time I try making a block, I seem to say "Yeah, someday. But not this day." And the block gets added to the orphan pile.
In my last post, I showed a picture of an applique quilt that got me all excited about applique, and gave a link to the pattern I bought. Since I couldn't seem to light on anything, I started pulling some scraps to play with.
I didn't want to put a huge effort into this since it's basically just a test block. If I hate it, I can drop the whole project with little investment.
This was the first thing I came up with.
Here, I'll make a mockup to show it better.
Pretty safe choices. Not quite the bang I'm looking for.
I tried again.
That's a little more fun. (That's that red that photographs as orange-red. I've had trouble with it before.)
Maybe a different red?
Or maybe I'll just pull all batiks...
Which do you think is the most me?
Linking to Oh, Scrap, because it's Sunday and that's where the fun is!
