Woven Star Two...or Psychedelic Rippling Flower

Alright. With this I took Leila's advice to sew triangles into the Y seam of the points, but then I couldn't resist trying my hand at inset seams, which is how I sewed the squares into the corners. I think they turned out looking good, and they were not as complicated as I thought they'd be. Despite some unintentional wonk and construction problems, I'm happy. It doesn't line up symmetrically like I wanted, but I will forgive myself and enjoy the effect this beautiful crazy thing makes. When I show Matt, he keeps me from getting obsessed with perfection, and he possesses the calm required to pull me back down to earth and appreciate the beauty of the process, "mistakes" and all. This one was capital F fun.

  3. Too cute. Quilters can usually fix a little wonkiness.
