This weekend I was able to prep and begin making another asterisk block quilt. In keeping with the monochromatic phase I seem to be in lately, I chose to use various blue fabrics. Please note that missing from the design wall are the white vertical and horizontal sashing strips I will be adding between the blocks shown. I'm thinking of adding a white inner border the same width of the sashing and then the pieced border of leftover blue fabrics.
I also was able to make four more of the grannie square blocks. In the project box I have five more ready to sew together. It sure has been fun playing with the squares and trying to figure out which ones I want to use together in the same block. The quilt layout has not been decided yet. I started an EQ file for this and experimented with creating an alternative block. It's too soon to tell (in other words I haven't come up with another block that I like.......yet).
Thanks for stopping by. Let me know what you think.
