Have you participated in an Instagram quilt swap yet?
I do one a year for the fun of it but there are quilters who seem to be doing several at a time and all the time!
This box arrived in my mailbox one morning last week!! So excited.
Ohhhhh, so promising!!
And here it is -- wonderful because it's bright and because it's not something I would ever make for myself.
Such a delightful array of modern prints -- something I could not do with my deep stash of florals and reproduction prints. And there were some little bonuses.
That is the tiniest hexagon I've ever seen in that necklace and I don't own a single one of those little clips everyone is so in love with and won't this pattern be fun to play with in the future?!?
No y-seams but one of my favorite shapes!!
And what did I make?
I've kept very quiet about it!
It was a spontaneous idea that evolved as it went along. I intend to play with the stars "sharing a corner" some more (and in a larger scale -- these are 3/4" diamonds) because I see some other design possibilities.
I think this might be the closest I've come to a "modern" quilt, too!!
If you are an Instagram fan, I encourage you to check out some of the other terrific creations from this swap -- very inspiring!! The hashtag is #starblockquiltswap
Linking up today with SEW CUTE TUESDAY which has a new hostess over at Young Texan Mama.
