Dancing Stars



Today's design wall is full of dancing stars.

They're eight inch blocks that will be a baby quilt ---soon, I hope.

And those stars in exile on the upper right? They're over there because I cut them wrong and they're out of step.  Marching to the wrong tune.

I really like this quilt, especially the dark background on the blocks. Is there a pattern?

Denise :) said...

Very nice -- I like the opposing slanted settings. Perhaps your exile blocks can become matching pillows! :)

Lynne said...

It took me a while but I finally saw it! They look very bright and happy together!

Krista said...

Very pretty! I hope those poor little exiled blocks will find a good home somewhere. They look lonely :)

Connie said...

What neat wonky blocks! Maybe you could use those blocks in the corners.

Quilter Kathy said...

Great blocks! It took me a minute to figure out why those 2 blocks were exiled!! LOL

Gari said...

I have never made an eskew quilt before but I really like how your blocks "dance." And I love baby quilts that are not "traditional."

This is going to make a really fun quilt. Love your style for this!

Bonnie said...

Terrific baby quilt. And, love, love, love the bright colors. Ditto every one regarding why you exiled the two quilts. But finally the light bulb went on!

Vicki said...

I love this quilt. I like to save up the exiled blocks and put them in a free for all quilt when they stack up. great job!

Really cute! P.S. I got your envelope in the mail - ideas are now percolating. :)

Thanks!

I love the bright colors with the black. It will be a very pretty baby quilt.

Beth said...

Busy girl! Is it nervous energy? Looks GREAT!!!

Amy said...

I bet you could use your "exiled" blocks and none of us would be the wiser.

Heather said...

That will be a beautiful baby quilt! I see it's already been mentioned, but my first thought on using your odd blocks was matching pillows. lol They're too pretty not to use somehow!

Alycia said...

I love it!! Even the stars dancing to their own tune! Individuals LOL

Don't you just love the look of the twist and turn technique? You can use your other dancers on the back (wink)! Sandi
