Um, really, I'm participating in another Quilt Along? Yep! I just learned about the Spangled Stars Quilt Along over at Quilt Fabrication and jumped in a week late and am already caught up! Here's my 9-patches and Bar Blocks.
I'm making the wall hanging size. I did not strip piece the 9-patches because it would have wasted a lot of fabric for the few blocks required in the wall hanging, so they are pieced a little differently than the instructions. I am not finding fault with the instructions in any way. Strip piecing of the 9-patches is a great idea for the larger quilt sizes that require more blocks. I did strip piece the bar blocks.
This will go on the wall in the aqua bathroom. The quilt background is the faintest of aquas, the "blues" will be varying shades of aquas, the center of the stars will be pink, and the red remains red. I'm hoping the "stars" end up looking like flowers.
