OK. I admit I was late getting started on Prompt 1--spools (see my last post) and then Prompt 2--stars was announced. I have a very busy February with a limited amount of sewing time. What's a girl to do?
Why, check what everyone else is doing, of course! That's when I saw that someone (sorry, I don't remember who) had used what looked like dancing spools on fabric as a border for prompt one. YES, I had a fabric with spools -- granted they were very old-fashioned spools -- so I fussy-cut several 3-1/2" squares for a test run.
In the meantime Prompt 2--stars had been announced. Dare I use the same crutch and look for a star fabric? Well, wouldn't you???
So I cut some 3-1/2" squares of star fabric and alternated them with the spool fabric. That sounds like a win for me.
Pretty dreary, if you ask me. But timing is running out, I'm going to be out of town and away from the sewing machine for a bit, and I'll be way behind when I get back to sewing. So here's my plan: I will make traditional 3-inch spool blocks and the "spool" part of the block will be the star fabric!
