I am enjoying stitching together bits of fabric to make these little blocks, and then stitching them together with sashing and a center square. They are addictive and oh-so-easy to make. The only accuracy needed is the final cut into a 4" square. And cutting the sashing accurately, too, of course. (The color's a little off, maybe a little too creamy: no sun today and evening flash.)
I still have heaps of light colored scraps. (These colors are off too -- not creamy enough. Oh, sun, please shine again soon.)
They are fun but they are time-intensive. Some of the pieces are as small as an inch by an inch-and-a-half. (I can't seem to throw them away.) And I press the seams. I know some of you wouldn't but I think pressing makes the blocks flatter.
I knew this quilt would be light. Maybe it's going to be even lighter than I thought.
While I'm working on these, the stars are on the (design) floor with two different colors of fabric to try out sashing options. More about that quilt tomorrow.
