I’m working on a Lonestar Block with the help of the Hopeful Homemaker.
There is a lot of very careful pinning involved. Piecing that is this precise – and without paper – always tests my patience.
The background fabric troubled me. I used Bari J’s text fabric in the lone star diamonds, and now I don’t have enough to use as a contrasting, low-volume background.
I tried out another option from Bari J’s Petal and Plume line as well as an Art Gallery squared elements blender.
And then thought, “Wouldn’t it be crazy if…”
In the end, I decided on a solid background.
I’m skipping the Y seams in the Hopeful Homemaker’s tutorial and opting for pieced background sections. Those pesky points are enough of a challenge for now, so I’ll save y seams and bolder background attempts for the next project.
