And Oh My Goodness am I horrible at stars... star points specifically. Ack! I think it has to do with the angles and the non-mirror-image nature of any angle that is not 45 degrees, BAH! I have definite preferences about my points that let my passion for symmetry and regularity show through (I have tried to let loose, really, I just end up not liking the result!) and I am SO bad at meeting those parameters while still trying hard to make it suitably unkempt. This is very bad news since I have a bunch of 4" blocks that I am thinking of making into stars themselves. That is 40 blocks that will require 4 goose blocks each... 160 goose blocks with those infernal star points! Yikes, my quilt plan may have just taken a turn away from its original path. Oh darn, I'll just have to keep practicing!
This is the idea I have for a the final product... many stars that are crumb blocks in the middle and have various colored points with a neutral background (left) interspersed with large crumb blocks containing star blocks with gold star points (right) as well as heart blocks, blocks with 4 patches, and groups of 4 of the smaller blocks. I am trying to get an idea of what it will look like... I think I need to actually make more blocks. Sigh. I WILL figure out a faster way to make those goose blocks and get them to come out the right size, I WILL even if it kills me, which it might.
Happy stitching to all and to all a productive afternoon!
