I apologize for forgetting to take “step by step” pics during the sewing of the 36 blocks but well I was in a zone.
I remembered about pictures truly as I was pinning the final blocks to the wall. Since the quilt is basically 4 wall hangings put together as a bed size quilt I am dividing all the blocks in this manner. This actually helps make sure that the quilt is balanced in colors and light/dark. So 4 columns of 9 blocks each.
As you can see scrappy rules at this time. But I will be using a few fabrics as constants to give some continuity to the quilt.
I call this “Stable Scrappy”. 🙂
This is what my design wall looks like with all 36 Collaboration Star Blocks sewn.
I breezed thru the background blocks for the Boomer Rosettes (tomorrows post) and I started laying out one “wall hanging” on the design wall.
I am loving this.
I hope you are too.
Tomorrow I will share the Pieced Hexie BOOMER Rosettes.
But in the mean time I started making the 240 half square triangles I need for the setting blocks.
The green fabric will be used on all. That is one of the constants.
Bonnie and I are going to start taking preorders for Ring Around The Hexies Pattern Booklet (16 pages) on Monday, Sept 23rd.
Enjoy your day,
