Over the past few weeks, I’ve been rummaging through my stash looking for just the right fabrics for a special project. I knew they had to be bright and very small-scale prints or tone-on-tone fabrics as whatever blocks I would make would be small. I found these fabrics. Once I found them, I knew exactly what I was going to make.
The little quilt will be made with either 40 or 80 of these little 2.5″ LeMoyne Stars. I’m still not sure about the setting. But knowing how much I love stitching the little stars, I printed enough of the diamonds on the back of the fabrics to make 80 stars. If I don’t use them all in this project, they won’t go to waste as I know I’ll use them in others. I put a nickel in with them to give an idea of scale.
The back of one of the little stars. The seams aren’t yet graded but that will be done as soon as I decide on how I’m setting them. Because they’re so tiny, they’re very quick to stitch. These were stitched in slightly over an hour.
