Slowly but surely I am working my way through my latest English Paper Piecing project, previously shared with you HERE.
This batch of stars totals 20 which brings my tally up to 36 stars completed. I have also picked out my joining piece fabric, shown here in the background of a rich navy. It really makes the 3 different levels in the star pop, and will provide movement through the finished quilt.
As you can see with these blocks, I have been forced to include a fair amount of colour into the “blue” theme otherwise I would have run out of fabric a lot earlier than I have. I have also included some fussy cutting on selected prints, but I refuse to go overboard with it. My experiences with fussy cutting on other projects show that it’s incredibly wasteful of fabric.
It’s only a couple of months until I get the last installment of pieces from Jodi at Tales of Cloth, then I will be able to start basting and attaching the diamonds and triangles for joining. In the meantime I am sad to say that I am practically out of blue fabric (gasp!) and so this project will be stored away until I can produce some more appropriately coloured scraps.
What’s your opinion on Monochromatic quilts. Love them? Hate them? Do you have a favourite colour?
