I am a few days late with my challenge block... the color for August was white.
This was definitely the toughest color yet. Once I got to looking through my fabric though, I was inspired to call this my winter star.
I know it is very hard to see, especially in photos, but the center and points of my star are a snowflake fabric with a tiny bit of glitter in it. I think it will show up a lot better once all of my star blocks are together in a quilt.
This block looks better in person. I took a few photographs but these were the 2 best ones.
I used fabrics with different tones and prints.
I am definitely glad this one is done and excited to move on to September's color which is orange!!
I also realized last month that I haven't told you where I got my patterns for my blocks. Most of them are from a pattern of a class I took back in 2000 called Century Stars. I also pulled a few from the book called Around The Block by Judy Hopkins. All of the fabrics have come from my stash with the exception of the black star, where I had to borrow a piece from my mom.
You should go check out M-R's white block. She got very creative I think!
