Star Surround - Centers


This week's assignment for Melissa's Star Surround QAL was to do the star centers.  Since I had alread done the 'pinwheel' portion in order to fit all the pieces on my cork board for storage, they went together pretty quickly.  ** please, those doing the QAL, don't freak again - I am doing my piecing a little differently so my star points are not HSTs but geese units **

I am so glad I have a photo of each of my Surrounds, because as soon as I laid that board out on the table - YES - Bella just thought it was grand fun to dive bomb thru it.  So things are scrambled once again.  And I thought I was being clever - HA!!

I will be linking up with Happy Quilting for this week's assignment.  Check out how everyone is progressing.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  11. Very, very nice. I use flying geese when I make this block, too. It's easier for me. Gives it a cleaner look, I think.

  12. Did you get a picture of Bella and her new arrangement? You could be starting early on Pets on Quilts for next year.
    I love the stars, they look great, I usually go the other way and turn flying geese stars into HST's.

  14. Your stars are beautiful...very pleasing color combo. I don't know what is "less" helpful...having your layout plowed through and tumbled or watching your tiny applique pieces "walk" away stuck to the cat's backside...

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  15. Great fall colors for the stars. I love how you look at a project and decide the best way for you to do it. Wish I could do that more often!

  18. I am liking how this is coming along and good thinking on snapping the picture first. You have fur friends that mess them up and I have the kidlets that do the same. They think they are "helping".

  19. How pretty! You mean we're supposed to follow the directions on patterns? It's much more fun to change it up to suit your style instead. Glad I'm not the only one.
