Purple Star Center

Here's the center block for my Ostrich. I've decided to join the crowd of bloggers that's doing the one that Kim from Peach Quilting is offering. :)


I like the timetable she's set up - a nice slow project that won't have me rushing to meet the deadlines. I hope. :)

Not sure if I want to make this a two color quilt (well, deep purple, light purple, splotchy purple AND white) ... or add teal in there. I have the same 3 fabric choices in a bluey-green, deep teal, lighter aqua, and splotchy. I'll have to see what her next round is!

If you think you're interested, it's still not too late to join in, the center block's not due till the 15th.

Wow! Please tell me that's paper pieced so I won't feel so inadequate! Beautiful job- and purrrrrple is my favorite.

I love your piecing. What a sharp looking star...I feel like I know you from your color choices. Those are just the colors I would have pegged for you....
Have fun...looks like you are.

Jane that's an amazing job!! I thought at first it was a drawing - it is so precise. Had to blow it up to see the stitches down the centre. It looks great!!

Darcie said...

Superb piecing! Can't wait to see what you decide for the color scheme.

Patti said...

What an exciting block to use for the center. Well done!

Bonnie said...

Wonderful beginning for a RR. Can't wait to see your next round.

Very cool center! I can't wait to see it grow!

I just realized I forgot to answer your question about the two-color block. I am so sorry- I had every intention of doing that. I feel that yes, a two color block will be great to start. All the rounds are left up to interpretation anyway - a great way to stretch creativity while working on your own quilt.

That is such an awesome block. I too had to look closely to see if it was a drawing or actually stitched.

Cool! I really love that block. Perfect for the center of your ORR.

Su Bee said...

Holy COW!! How cool is that?

I'm still debating if I am going to do it. I think I'll save my feathered star for a Christmas quilt like the one I am finishing up for Betsy so would need to come up with another plan though I have some ideas in that department.

I bet anything if I DON'T do it I will wish I had join in on the fun.

That is spectacular! What great color choices, too!

Ann said...

I'm so jealous. I wish I had time to quilt again! Maybe when the garden winds down! Beautiful center, is this one going to be my Christmas present? hehe.

I love the 3 dimensional effect you have achieved by using the dark fabric so it looks like a shadow, it makes it really stand out.
Congratulations, I hope the rest turns out equally well. Hugs, Alison.
