Back in January my friend Desley sent me a set of acrylic templates to make a Grandma’s Star quilt. The fabrics on the package didn’t inspire me but Desley has started using them and has sent me pictures of her blocks which look great. That’s the inspirations I needed to give them a try! :) I don’t have a color plan yet, I just wanted to make one to see how hard it was….doesn’t that block look hard? Well it is if you don’t mark the 1/4” stop marks for the Y seams. Once I started following the instructions it went together much easier! I think this would be fun in jewel tone batiks but I might make the white Hexi’s around the center a light blue to add more color and keep the background a very light pink.
Have a great weekend…it’s suppose to reach 17’c here but I’ll believe when I see it!
