Another Star - Evelyn/Starfishy

This block had alot of bulk at some of the seam junctions.  I decided to iron some of those seams open instead of to the side.  Alot of seams for this design actually which makes no sense because really you could get this pattern just as easily with alot less pieces/seams.  But look there - I did use a fabric that I keep thinking is soooo ugly for the background - I figured the red plaid was strong enough to carry it off.
My collection of blocks using these colors so far - that little block I made using the waste triangles from week 1 - I think I am going to make a pin cushion out of it.

This block set is working out well! Nice to have the red plaid tying everything together!

Honeybee -- instead of trying to get Quilt Pixie, try Hetty. She is doing the admin now. There's a link to her blog in the left sidebar.

Your red plaid is a winner. It really makes the blocks sparkle.
