I started with a 12" block which I increased in size to give me an 18" finished block.
Then I started to reduce the star pattern, and tried to work in my colours
I started with the smallest star, which measures 2" finished. I then added that to my 4" finished block, hoping that my decreasing worked, and that it would all fit together.
|It looks like its coming together|
Phew! that seems to work.
The finished block is 18" square, contains the three colours, and 4 stars are (almost) 'present and correct'. You can't see, on the photo, but each star is shadow quilted and the outside of each star is quilted with a free motion vermicelli stitch.
Go over to flickr to see all the other ladies mini quilts, and don't forget you can always join us. I wonder what next month will bring????
