Star Count #10

This week I’ve been basting neutral, almost white shapes to fill in between my stars.  Mostly 1″ hexagons, but also half-hex and 60 degree diamonds, just to fill in all the little spaces.  I love having a big pile of neutrals ready to go.  It feels like having money in the bank, like I’m ready for anything.  Yup, anything those wild and crazy hexagons manage to throw my way, I’m ready.  🙂

Linking up again with Jessica Alexandrakis’s Monday Morning Star Count– and how I’m enjoying watching everyone’s projects evolve over the weeks!

    1. I have been busy but it’s a good kind of busy. Love to have a piece of fabric in my hands!

  1. I love your low volume neutral pieces. At the Central Jersey Modern Quilt Guild meeting last night we talked about low volume. They definitely should see these pieces. Beautiful work, and great presentation.

    1. Thanks, Terri. I love extremely low volume fabrics, the ones that really calm down a quilt. If I wasn’t having a baby any day now, I would totally have brought my EPP to the Mid-Atlantic Mod retreat and I could have met some of your group and shared projects there. Oh well; next year!

  2. Seeing all your basted hexis just makes me smile! That’s a lot of work.

    Your little ones are adorable!


    1. Thank you! They definitely make me smile, too, just to have them… the hexies and the kiddos.

  3. I love a stash of basted hexies! I love all the neutrals and you are so organized! Just beautiful and can’t wait to see where they end up in your design!

    1. Thank you 🙂 Hope to have a good part of them attached to their stars by Monday’s linkup!

  4. That was my error at first. I hadn’t realized that I would need almost as many neutrals as I had colored pieces of fabric. Now I know! Good job on yours!
