I finally got back to AmandaJean's seeing stars quilt-a-long. I've been behind for so long, I was determined to get back to it. I made 2 of blocks 10, 12, and 13. Haven't made 11 yet, but I'm not sure I'll need it. I picked my favorite 12 out of the 15 I've made and began experimenting with what to do next. I decided after I made 6 of the setting blocks (weeks ago) that I wasn't going to use them. I love the stars by themselves. This is what I've come up with. Each star is framed with a fabric from within the star and an additional white frame. I made them a bit more "jacquified" by skewing the frame a bit. They are now 18 inch blocks. I love the oversized block. For me it makes each star look like a separate painting. I would love to do this one without borders so I may need to make more stars. Right now it's 3 blocks by 4 blocks. It may depend on how much fabric I have left. I hope to finish framing all 12 blocks today. 5 done 7 to go!
