I am not overly concerned with speedy projects or easy projects.
I love a clever project so sometimes I'm seduced by a new ruler that cuts the time in half. It's for the cleverness not the production value.
I'm in the business of making.
good to the last thread!
Making for the process of making is a good thing sometimes.
Living with colors.
For the surprises as pattern and color come together into something larger than either are alone.
I used Jayne's link's pattern but enlarged it to 125% and taped the printed card stock together.
Jayne at http://twiggyandopal showed this project and I was in. A hexie and a star, as well as made with scraps! Yea!
Sewed the points to the hexie first.
Then inserted the backgrounds last.

This second purple star is undergoing the audition process, here with a pastel moda lavender.

I find it very gratifying to pull out the basting and the papers that are surrounded by stitches, so now my finished blocks have paper only on the outsides.
I enjoy how they can be moved around and have no earthly idea how I'll set them.
I do not want to lose the overall hexie shape but like how Jayne's create a circle of points.
I don't know where it's going, so I keep making more.
I am okay with that.
Let's see what happens.
I am taking part in so scrappy's Rainbow Scrap Challenge again. The color last month was purple and the color to use this month is Aqua. We choose our projects.
Join us if you like... we're using our scraps!
