As you might be able to guess....the dandelion fabric on the left is my favourite.
Now in an attempt to
put off constructing the 2 quilt backs I have to do put this gorgeous fabric to go use I thought I would try some paper piecing and mix up the colours a bit.
The block is called Diamond Stars and is designed by my lovely friend Kristy from Quiet Play. You can download a FREE copy of this block here.
Here are the results of my efforts yesterday afternoon. Am loving how these are turning out....the grey really helps to "pop" the fuschia. I am really pleased with the "reverse colour" star with the grey on the inside.
I have traced enough patterns to do at least another 4-5 blocks so I'm hoping that I can make a start on those today. Great day for sewing today...windy and wet!
I'm linking up with Fiona at Finding Fifth for her Sunday Stash!
Oh and if you know of any other fabric lines that contain dandelions...I would love to hear about them!
