I am having a lot of fun working on my little snowball blocks that make up first border around the center star. I decided to make all of my blocks in blue and pink, but use a variety of prints in those colors.
These little blocks are really easy to make, (check out how you can pieces them fast by starting with strips, here). I guess I am easily amused, but it really is satisfying just to spend time doing some basic piecing with really pretty fabric (-:
My fabrics for this quilt come from my stash of Art Gallery Fabrics. The original inspiration was the Avante Garde collection by Katarina Roccella. The bright colors and geometric prints are some of my all-time favorites.
Wouldn’t they even be cute as a quilt all by themselves? Of course, knowing me, I’m thinking about circles. How about a whole quilt of little four patch circles?
All that’s left is to sew these cuties into four nice little rows and attach them to my medallion star.
It’s so close! I cannot wait to see these all sewn on. I’ll be back soon to show you.
