Does this sound familiar, "honestly, I don't think this fabric can make an ugly block".... that was from my Wednesday post.....and at the time, I meant it, but now I've learned it's probably OK to think those thoughts, but saying them out loud, that's when you' re asking for trouble...
So yesterday, I started making a few more star blocks for Mocha Trail. I wanted to start on the star blocks because that seemed like the fun part of this project. Picking out different fabric combinations, watching them come together....
so I made two more blocks, threw them on my design wall and smiled.
My goal was to make my next block look even better than the 3 before it.
And I came up with this . . .
What a muddled mess!

I think I've figured out that red should not be in the background fabric
and the star center and star points should not be made from fabric with the same two colors, and only those two colors!!
Is that horrible or what!!
I'm trying to talk myself into putting this block on the back, I'm not so sure I can do it....some things are best forgotten!!
Monday will be my 200th post!!
Do you know what that means,
besides I talk too much,
It will be short and sweet, so come on back and check it out.
Speaking of giveaways, Sandy, at Textile House is giving away Carrie Nelson's latest book, just hot off the presses, A Touch of Rosie Quilts. I'm passing this along because I'm the first commenter on Sandy's giveaway, and the first commenter never wins. So since I'll be buying this book, I thought I would give you the opportunity to win it!!
Have a great weekend!!!
