I couldn't stand seeing this forlorn bolt of fabric at The New Ewe being ignored with its true potential unseen by so many sewers. I knew I have to take it to new heights, so yesterday I bought 2- 5/8 yards of the Windham Fabrics Delft Collection brown.
I had always seen this as Stack N Whack stars. So I cut half the fabric into diamonds to construct 8 pointed kaleidoscopic stars. I over-cut the dark brown background fabric so the stars could be trimmed to make "perfect" 12-1/2" blocks. Here are the first four:
I am going to place them in a layout design from the book, Circle of Nine, by Janet Houts and Jean Ann Wright.
The New Ewe is participating in the Spring Shop Hop March 11-16. I have been preparing for my part in demonstrating of new tools and techniques during these days. Exciting things to see!
I have my classes scheduled and the samples made. Here is my newest Stack N Whack class sample--Fans! Fun and E-A-S-Y! Not hard at all. March 8 or April 17.
Another class is using the Square in a Square ruler. It's been over 15 years since I have used mine, but so much potential for quilt designs. This is a 24" square table topper.
