This makes #3 of 8.
If you count the fabrics from the center outwards,
#1 is the blue diamonds
#2 is a pink floral
#3 is a pink/green print
#4 is the green
Fabrics #2 and #3 were 'donation' fabrics, in that they were given to me by a quilter who was purging her stash. They are perfectly good fabrics; the prints are simply something that I wouldn't have normally chosen for myself.
But, this project has been pushing me to consider fabrics that I wouldn't ordinarily use. Fabric #2 is actually rather old-fashioned looking, where as fabric #3 is VERY VERY busy. I really can't even describe the over all impact of fabric #3. :-)
But, together? I actually think they work rather nicely. I'm sure that's a metaphor for something in life. :-)
Work on half-star #4 is progressing onwards.
As I was rummaging through my fabric bins for something else, I came across a dark hued striped fabric. In keeping with using fabrics that are a tad outside my limits, I decided that it would be a good candidate as an anchor fabric for a half-star. It has enough other colors for coordination. We'll see how that one turns out. :-)
