Ding Ding, Round 3...

This month in Stitch Tease we are making for Trina.  Trina joined mid-year 2, when one of our lovely number went all MH370, so she quite rightly gets to be Queen Bee first in round 3.

With a lovely palette request, and free-reign to make any star blocks, I settled on two which floated my proverbial.

Firstly a whole bunch of lovely HSTs picked from the Farmer's Wife book, Star Gardner...


... and a Ribbon Star using Lee-Freshly Pieced's fab tutorial...


I inadvertently missed out using any darker yellow/orange in these blocks, all mine seemed a little too acidic, but I hope they will still make Trina happy.

It feels like a long while since I last had complete choice over bee blocks, and it was a bit of a challenge to stop the search for the ultimate star!  So a change is as good as a rest, and this is as near to a rest as I am likely to get for a while!

Now if the postman pulls his finger out, I should have another finish to show you tomorrow xxx

  1. Lovely finish Mrs, I've gotten as far as choosing the fabrics and printing out the patterns, that's almost done right?!

  3. Excellent blocks. Once they are priced with the others they will fit in perfectly. None of the blocks will have all the palette. They will all balance each other out.
