Buying fabric and making plans? Do I have to sew ALL. THE. THINGS.? Why yes, yes I do. So, I had to run out for batting to use on the 3 items I have finished in the past month, Peacock, Pie Birds, rue d’Osage, and the one being pieced Orange. I also picked up 16″x16″ forms for pillow projects. I think every soft space in my house will have a pillow before too long.
So, of course I perused the fat quarters. Cause who doesn’t? I knew I wanted to grab a green to cut a few pieces for a quilter in need of variety, and at $1.00 per fat quarter, why wouldn’t I? Did I luck into a sale or what? Then the thought struck, maybe I could get some brights for that paper pieced star I want to do. Like theses examples I found on Pinterest.
Once I got home I decided that I needed to add some other colors to the spectrum, red, yellow, and purple for sure. And I wanted varying shades to use as in the left star photo above.
A white background will be my base, so the colors will pop! I plan to surround the star with squares of all the shades. A rainbow chain of color. Now I just have to find time to squeeze another project in! Sleep? Who needs sleep! Actually I haven’t been sleeping well anyway. Too bad BioGirl’s room is right next to my sewing room.
And just to show you how far down a rabbit hole I fall. I found this while searching for stars. Now, what fabric can I use to make one of these? Or this one! Which is a larger version of one I did ages ago. Somebody Stop Me!!
