When I first started writing this blog, I told you I'd share my failures with you along with my successes. So here goes.
I started making these Sawtooth Stars with this cute widdle ducky print fabric to use as the foundation for a baby quilt.
I've had the fabric for some time waiting for inspiration. I haven't made a star motif in a baby quilt for quite a while so thought I would fussy cut the fabric as the center block for 6" stars.
Red and yellow would/should be perfect with the focus fabric, right?
But it's just not doin' it for me. Not sure why. While I've been constructing the star blocks, I've been trying to come up with a brilliant idea of how to put them together. So far, I've thought up . . . and discarded . . . a few lay-outs. Nuthin' is giving me the shot of adrenaline to charge ahead with sewing machine pedal to the metal.
So I think what this means is I need to scoot the seven blocks I have made over to a corner of my design wall and work on something else for the time being. Nope, I'm not going to call these little blocks a failure . . . they just need time to sit and mellow before they tell me how to proceed.
