Two Months In

I see from my diary that it is two months since I started my hexagon stars quilt. Here are the two stars I made this week:

Hexagon star number 21

Hexagon star number 22

And here’s a shot showing all 22 stars, albeit in terrible light and on my teenage son’s unvacuumed carpet!! This is not my planned layout but does give an idea of how the stars play together. I can see that I need more with pink backgrounds to balance out all the yellow, for example.

22 stars so far

I’m still on the lookout for the perfect black/white print for my setting triangles but am not having much luck so far.

    I’m sure the right background setting will come along in its own sweet time. Patience! πŸ™‚

    They look so nice ( and my sons’ carpet is worse!) and when you find your background fabric it will be perfect!

  3. Your points look beautifully sharp!

      Ooh thank you!! Not all of them are, but I try not to get obsessed and assure myself that with a bit of wiggling it might all fit together at the end πŸ™‚
