After my successful practice 8-point star blocks I decided it was time to get the real quilt started!
Here are my first two "real" stars. The fabric is Collection for a Cause: Hope by Howard Marcus. I've decided not to make the quilt as originally planned but see if I can somehow use these blocks along with the "free" blocks from making the star block and set them all together. Stay tuned as this will surely be a work in progress for a while to come!
I wanted to show you another quilt from the show we attended this past Friday. I've never seen nor heard of this "chenille" technique! The fabric appeared to be some sort of gauzy polyester - very interesting. I have no idea how it's done, but it reminded me a little of rug hooking! What do you think?
