WIP Wednesday: 15 Rose Star Blocks

I think fifteen Rose Star blocks is a good enough milestone to lay them all out and see where I stand, so let's revel in the pile o' blocks today! Yippee :-D

Ohhhhhhhhh, so purdy! I am loving how colorful it is. Quilty, quilty love. I don't know why I was so worried about making too many blue blocks. Who knew I had so much yellow fabric in my stash? Where did all of this yellow come from?

I think the blocks with the vibrant colors are my favorites. Doing some fussy cutting along the way definitely brings out the design of the blocks. I wish I had correctly positioned that chair in the "Furniture" fabric from the Daisy Cottage line. It will forever be tilted to one side or the other. I'm afraid you'll see a little more of that in upcoming block sixteen as well. Oops.

This layout of fifteen blocks measures 60"x50." I have no idea what I'm shooting for here, but I should probably let go of the idea that these are going to be a part of a finished quilt at the end of the year. Multi-year projects are NOT my thing. I guess I'll have to get over it for this quilt. At least this is the most fun handwork ever! If you haven't given these a go yet, hop on over to the tutorial on selfsewn and start :-)

I can't wait to see everyone's WIPs! Happy Wednesday!


  1. They look great all together. BTW, there's a blog hop coming up soon that you might be interested in entering the competition at the end... ;o)

  2. These are all beautiful. The furniture block will always be scared alien cover his eyes to me. lol

  3. These are stunning! Really -- I am going to follow you around our SS room and make you teach me. I promise it won't be (too) creepy.

  4. These are beautiful. I don't think blue dominates at all. My favorite is the top center one:)

  5. Gorgeous! Great powerful colors. I really need to start on the ones you sent me. :) So inspired right now!
