Hexi Stars the dark side
I have made some hexi stars for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge this month, and thought finished or not, I'd show you what I made.
I've used some pretty black scraps for the outside segments... and the
Inside stars... I just adore the black and white around the points and the way it sort of comes and goes with the white parts next to the strong black centers
When I chose the pattern I didn't realize just how much it would teach me!
Here are three more neutrals in progress
the striped one counts for a dark brown for me. I love the color shading and radiating lines. It was a skinny strip before I made a "point" of it!
I like the little tree in center of this one. Life is in the details.
A couple more I finished
I like the mix of white and cream and beige in both blocks...
I keep components like basted points and edges in my travel box
Note the brown points in progress.. Love a dot!
My little cardboard lunch box holds a lot of basting paper shapes, fabrics pre cut, needle, threader, scissors, threads, and finished components. When I lay them out to sew together I use this little cardboard insert salvaged from the recycling bag...
and the whole thing reminds me to....
