I have been working on my hand stitching project since Christmas. I brought some new fabrics to make more starts and started tacking diamonds. I carted it all the way around western Victoria, laid out all the pieces, admired it and then started unpicking!So the stars had been looking like this - this is a "sister", seven six pointed stars laid out in a hexagon shape. Dont ask what I am going to do about the missing triangle..havent figured that out yet!
I was going nuts trying to pick seven stars that didn't clash, had the right mix of light and dark and didn't replicate colours. I am not great at true "just throw it in, random scrappy" even though I am a big Bonnie Hunter fan. There is no pattern for this quilt, I am just making it up as I go (a sure fire remedy for disaster!) using a traditional pattern.
Happy quilting, Sue SA.
