Stars

I was lucky enough to 'win' some lovely Lemoyne Stars at our challenge group. They are all in different purples and look amazing! There are nine of them, which is a good number for a lap quilt but I wanted to be a little more adventurous. I didn't want to just join them together, so found some fabric which would make a good contrast for setting squares.


Then I decided to push it all a little further, and make some Irish Chain blocks to add a little more interest to the quilt.

This is my mock up. Looking good!

And here are several blocks on my design wall. I only have nine star blocks, so have agonised over how to use them effectively as I really don't want to make any more. I think I've solved it, but will have to get sewing before the big reveal.
