Purple Wonky Star

Worked several hours Thursday in my sewing room. My goal was to finish my wonky star for April RSC2014.  I am really pleased how it turned out.  I didn't have a lot of purple and was worried I didn't have enough variety, but I used the right and wrong side of one fabric to give me the variety I needed.


 I couldn't resist laying out all my wonky star blocks.  I think my granddaughter is really going to love all these rainbow colors!

    1. I love the purples too, not sure why I only own a few. Glad to see these pieces finally come out of the stash and used.

  2. Those blocks look great together. I just need more time in the day so I can sew all the things I'd like to. This is going to be my pattern for next year.... if I don't start sometime this year with them!
    Great tip to use both sides of the fabric.

    1. It is a fun and easy block. Each one seems to sparkle when I finish it. Now I am looking forward to next months color.

  3. I use the backs of fabrics too, but not intentionally. Very clever to think of it ahead of time. Your quilt is coming together beautifully.

    1. Thanks Sally. I used to worry about that, I guess that was leftover rules from garment making days. It works wonderfully for quilting.

    1. Thanks for hosting RSC2014, I really like the idea of using a color a month. I also like that each month is almost like its own project.

  5. What a treat to find a few hours to sew. The few purples look like many. All girls seem to like all these pretty colors.

    1. I always have fun once I give myself permission. We have a wybeet forcast for this week, so maybe I can get my next quilt top marked.

  10. This will be an incredible quilt. What's not to love! Isn't it amazing how some fabrics work both ways and you have a choice of how to use it.

    1. Starting off as a garment maker that would have been a no -no, but with quilting it is a great solution for when a bit more variety is needed.
