Missouri Star tutorial, disappearing hourglass pattern. I used scraps of solids.
Maybe some scraps should be thrown out.
Still I persisted because I'd cut out 24 squares to make 12 blocks.
And to be part of the group I wanted to try the technique.
There are some fun parts to the technique, like all the variations
I do not love the finished blocks likely because of the colors.
It is graphic and with 12 blocks and a border should make a baby or senior lap quilt.
Each block came out about 11.5" before sewing into the top so it will be about 34 X 44 ish before borders
At least I tried something new, learned something about color and scraps and holding on.
For happy inspiration, please visit my "I Like" post HERE ! to see some great pictures of inspirational color. I invite you to do an I Like post too, and let me know so I can link to your blog
