I mentioned in an earlier post attending a workshop with Bonnie Hunter, designer, blogger and author.
Well, here is an EQ6 drawing of the version of “Starstruck” I started in her workshop. I added the Freindship Star border in black and cream as a little bit of my own contribution to the design. My finished quilt will be 97″ by 97″. Notice the dark stars and the light stars in the body of the quilt.
Making the quilt involves cutting dark strips of various floral prints ………
…… and light strips.
Sewing them together and cutting into squares.
and lots of light squares.
And sewing them all together results in blocks of various color combinations.
I need 100 of these blocks to finish my quilt. I will keep you posted on my progress!
By the way, as a by product of all this cutting and sewing and cutting and sewing, you produce bonus half-square-triangles…
… and pieces that can be turned into four patch units. Isn’t that wonderful?
