I placed the blocks into diamonds instead of squares and I like the result. I have enough to finish it if I cut the edge pieces in half. I think it looks cool and I'm feeling confident and ready to quilt it. What do you think of these two shapes?
Do you like this?
I'm leaning toward diamonds because I'm bored with making these blocks. I have enough to sew the top if I do the diamonds and it'll still be square, which seems important to me for this quilt. It'll be smaller than I planned, but I can live with it. If I go with the squares I have enough blocks to make a 4 block by 5 block (blocks are 15") top, or I could just continue to make five more blocks for a 25 block square top like I originally planned. I'm leaning toward diamonds. It looks more interesting to me than the squares. Would love to know what any of you think.
Okay. And last night I made another wonk star. Boy do I love these things! This one's about 9". I can see in my mind a big wonky top of randomly shaped and sized stars. The Patty Young Sanctuary fabric around the edges makes the thing POP. So this one is my interpretation of space, it's tumultuous out there.
Happy sewing blog friends!
