Hexie Star blocks in Blue

And this is why I love color! All the colors together are so very happy! And this is just the ones already finished, there are ones ready to construct, and ones in my head!
Anyway... this month at the RSC focuses on using blue scraps, so here are the ones I have done
 close up so you can enjoy the fabrics


 hee hee
look at the fabrics left when I made a stack and whack years ago!






 little lizzards! One of these is not like the others, haha







 I am having trouble setting this one, I think it needs mostly plain white around it, not the body parts
or the one I planned for it
too beige-y and wallpaper-y

Note the millennium fabric from 2000. Those scraps have been in the box a while! I might just use this setting anyway...

As I was photographing these I placed the plain star on a background without the hexie effect and thought how cool just appliqueing them all touching would be!

  16. These ARE happy blocks! That's the first thing I thought when I saw the pictures! You are a patient woman, I don't know that I would finish hexie blocks. But that's okay, I like looking at yours!

  17. I think that the occasional background you are not so happy with won't matter once they are all together; the stars will just shine out.

  18. WOW - these stars look great! I really love the fabrics, especially that one background with the different colored stars. They do all look so happy. They make me smile - it must make you smile to look at your design wall. ~smile~ Roseanne
