I have been working on my Delilah Four Patch Star by Jen Kingwell. The fabrics I received in the mail were bold and beautiful:)
I decided to experiment with color this month. All of my instincts wanted me to stick with a normal Jen Kingwell pallet.
Isn’t it pretty? But for some reason I decided to play with color, and see what happens. It is really amazing to me how color placement can alter the look of a block.
Can you believe they are the all the same pattern? The striped fabric in the star made it disappear. Lesson learned—don’t use striped or large prints for small stars.
Here are four more stars in softer tones
Crazy right? I really like all of my four Patch stars, but my original is my favorite followed by this pretty orange and blue one
I am having sew much fun making these template blocks that look like paper piecing. But I must admit that I am getting tired of Y seams. I look forward to next month because it looks like only straight joins are in the forecast. Yea!!
The quilt party for Delilah is closed for this year, but there will be a pattern coming out next year if you want to make your own.
