I promised you stars, I will give you stars!
Along with the blocks the Brit Bees make for each other every month, we send a siggy block, following the quick tute over at PS I Quilt. I decided that I was going to make mine into additional stars for my Constellation, pretty much as soon as I had decided on the quilt.
Today I pieced the 12 siggy blocks into 3 stars, having re-photographed all the blocks and siggies first, so I have a record of whose blocks were whose for prosterity.
NB. Apologies, I have not been using the siggies to clean the bathroom, I have digitally smudged surnames and hometowns to keep up the Brit Bee's mystique!
Looking at all the blocks laid out again, gave me a really excited feeling, and has started the old cogs turning on how I am actually going to quilt this beauty.
I am not going to risk ruining it with some FMQ fiasco, and I would not put money on being able to align the stars on both sides accurately enough to echo-quilt the seams, so I shall be lurking around flickr and pinterest for some flash of inspiration, unless you can think of anything in the meantime! Any suggestions more than welcome xxx
For the remainder of the evening, I have the small task of trimming many many more HSTs...
...whilst repeating the mantra 'it WILL be worth it, they WILL look great' over and over again!
