|Light one by Diana D. and the dark one by June|
I didn't get pics of all the people working but you'll see some examples of their fabric choices. It really changes the look if you choose hand dyes, or tone on tones vs batiks printed with pattern like mine and Helen's.
Diana D. chose a batik jelly roll from Batiks Etc. and a mottled beige background. I love it. June started with a jelly roll as well, and both of them took some time to choose the right ones to shade from light to dark. Lovely.

Some members worked from home and brought it in to show their progress.
We meet in the library's conference room, which is well lit with a terrific design wall in place for us to use. We always have returning members in the summer as many are teaching during the year. We always order take out for lunch eating at long tables as we catch up on news.
I have the best time looking at all the choices. The same pattern looks so different, doesn't it? I like scraps, so I varied the color and prints. Helen kept to one color for the star but varied prints. Torie kept hers analogous with blues and greens, very calm. Bern is making a larger quilt with Autumn colors
much more vibrant than my picture shows.
|Bern's 4 block unit, more to come|
She will donate it to our guild's program for children at Christmas. The salvation army supplies us with teddy bears, that we dress and make a child's quilt for so that children in the area receive a gift on the holidays.
Some child (like me!) will love this.
And of course mine....
So there you have it, many different looks from the same Missouri Star tutorial (Link)
