It’s been unseasonably warm in SC. I would love to say that it seems odd to be sewing a strawberry in January, but it honestly feels like they should already be ripening.
The starflower block tutorial is by Ellison Lane. If you’ve never sewn half-square triangles, this is a great first block.
I think I did fairly well, but I definitely need to work on my ironing skills. My seams seem to have shadows. On the plus side, MolliSparkles said my block has a lot of joy in it! Wheeeee! 🙂
Right now, I’m working with some brights, but I
may do have done (see below!)another colorway pulling from my scrap bin of vintage, repurposed (read: old clothes) and hand-me-down grandma fabrics. I’m going to push myself to sew from my stash for this entire project, so this could get pretty interesting. Stay tuned.
