WIP Wednesday- Scrappy Asterisk

I've done it!

I've finally managed to make a light grey block for my sampler quilt that I love as much as the dark grey blocks! Until now I have often been disappointed with the way the colours have worked in the light grey blocks that I have sew, but I've loved the ones that other people have made for me.


I have come to the conclusion that I was using the wrong orange tones. This time I went for lighter, brighter tangerine shades instead of deeper stronger colours, I think that it worked well. I'll definitely remember it when I make the remaining light grey blocks.

The pattern that I used was the scrappy asterisk

Here it is among the other blocks: 

As usual, I'm joining in with Work in Progress Wednesday

  3. Love this! The asterisk looks great set slightly askew! (I hope that's the right word and not a case of "i do not think that word means what you think it means" hehe)
