Strip Diamond Stars

Oops. I may have just started another quilt.

I'm heading in the direction of string diamond stars, but that's about all I know. Except that I want this to have a more subdued palette.

 I have this bin out because I have been working on the Spiderweb. While I have included a full range of fabrics in the Spiderweb, I skip over some of the more subtle colors and designs. Not because I don't like them but because I get the sense that they don't want to spend the rest of their lives at a noisy party.

And thanks to Leanne and Nicky for sponsoring Scraptastic Tuesday. Last month I won the gift certificate to Mad About Patchwork. Here are the fabrics I chose. Okay...maybe I went a bit crazy. When I first got the certificate, I spied the bears and fell in love with them. But when I went back to get them, they were gone. This meant I had to find them elsewhere. But in spirit, I got them for participating in Scraptastic Tuesday.

  2. I "inherited" my Great-Grandmother's UFO box and in it are 8 or 9 of these scrappy string pieced stars!

  3. I rather like the idea of a quiet party of strings (she said after attending a loud and boisterous quilting retreat and having out-of-state family in town for all sorts of celebrations). Quiet.... What a concept! But those bears - my eyes went straight to them. So cute. Looks like you got some great stuff.

  5. LOVE the stars in the more subdued palette. Looks rather vintage. Good luck with the Y seams. Even after all of them in my finished Jack's Chain and the Triangle Stars I struggle with them.

    CUTE fabrics. I seem to be collecting little critters lately too. Not sure what I'm going to do with all of them. You?

  6. Those stars might be having a quieter party, but it looks like fun to me! And I already oopsed this month, or else I'd be tempted to start one of these, too...
