Ohio stars, for instance.
I made two more -
one in orange and one in purple. It could be argued (not by me, of course) that I don't really need any more orange, but I pulled one of the black background blocks which are scattered around the edges so I could move it to the lower right corner, where it would look and balance better. This
Well, I finally got the right edge of the quilt into the picture, but now I've lost the left edge.
All I need now are a few more blues and/or purples to fill in that last corner, and I'll be all ready to start dithering on settings, setting triangles, and borders. You all know how I like a good dither. 8)
And I've started auditioning blocks for next year's RSC.
Kaleidoscopes are a definite yes. The only up-in-the-air part is size - 4", 6", or 8". I'm inclined to do the 4" ones just because I like small blocks. (We all have our little quirks, right?)
And, as an excuse to get more use out of my tri-recs rulers, I'm considering these stars:
In this case, I'm wondering if I want to do them this way, or to reverse the colors and background to make light stars on a dark background. Or maybe I should do both kinds and alternate them? Size-wise, these are big blocks - they're going to finish at 6"!
And while I was stitching the above, and another twinkly star as well, I caught another monkey sneaking in.
At last count there were around sixty of the little rascals bouncing around the room. Or maybe more.
It's hard to count something that won't hold still.
Linking up to Oh Scrap! Come see what everyone is doing!
